On Forgiveness

I love President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  His personable manner and inspired topics never fail to touch my heart.  I feel as if he is speaking directly to me, and I know that the Spirit is.  His most recent address in the April 2012 General Conference of the Church fit well into this category.  How often have I caught myself nursing anger and resentment and heard his words again:  stop it!

Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdor speaks on mercy


To All The Women In My Life

It’s difficult to choose of all Pres. Uchtdorf’s messages to share as a Mother’s Day thought, but this particular address emphasizes the inherent self-worth of all women, mothers or not, and so it’s well-worth sharing. My wish to all the women in my life this day is that they know they are loved, appreciated, and valued, especially by our loving Father in Heaven.

Happy Mother’s Day.
