Deuteronomy 4:29 (Old Testament) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It has been a long, long time since I have posted. I had been forgetting about it. But the scriptures are so important, and I want to share them with everyone, so I will try to post at least once a week! In this chapter, the Children of Israel are being told the consequences of their turning from God. The consequences are disastrous and brutal, but this scripture follows. The Lord will never forsake you. It is never to late to turn to Him; He loves you and wants you to come into Him.

D&C 25:10 ~~~~~~~~~~ Happiness is truly achieved as we focus on things that aren't of the world. The world constantly tells us what's important- popularity, your clothes, being the best on your team, fame, your appearance, your weight, the number of "followers" you have- the list goes on and on. We are constantly told to compare ourselves to others and if we don't meet up then we aren't good enough. THIS IS NOT TRUE. As we focus on what's really important- our family, those we love, the beautiful creations that God has made, the words of the prophets, striving to become like Christ and return to our Father in Heaven- then we can realize that none of this stuff the world tells us we need to be happy really matters. God loves you, YOU are His child, and that is what matters. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Psalms 37:23-24 ~~~~~ These two scriptures teach so much. We need to delight in the way of The Lord and align our will with His. Sometimes He has a different plan in mind for us than we do, but we need to trust that He knows what is best for us. Trust in Him, and do His will, and it will bring you joy. Although we will feel joy following the Lord's path, we will still have hardships- that's part of earth life. But this scripture promises that it will not be too much to handle, but that if we are righteous, The Lord will uphold us with His hand. Isn't that an amazing promise? The Creator of everything is there for you, to help you through all your trials, because He loves you. All He asks is that you trust Him and follow Him. And He will bring you happiness! I know this is true. I can feel the Lord's hand in my own life as I strive to follow His plan for me. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Abraham 3:22-23 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You are one of the noble and great ones! Like Abraham, we were each chosen in the premortal life to be here, now, for a reason. God knew our limitless potentials and put us where we needed to be. YOU were chosen by God. I have such a testimony in that, that all of us have a divine purpose and destiny. I challenge you all to pray and learn of those reasons. Pray for help to fulfill those divine responsibilities and destinies that were given to you by God. I have a testimony that this is true! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

D&C 6:34 ~~~~~~~~~~~~ The world can seem overwhelming at times. But if you do good, and build your foundation on the rock of the Savior, you will prevail! Christ will help you through it all: the trials, the tribulations, the temptations, the sorrows- everything. Do the best you can. Help and serve others, keep the commandments, pray, read your scriptures, and do good in general, and you will be helped through it all. I know this is true because I have experienced it. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Luke 6:35 ~~~~~ Sorry it's been a while. I just got back from a service trip for 3 weeks. It was such a neat experience! Service brings happiness! While I was there, in my personal scripture study, I read this scripture. I suggest reading the whole chapter! It is so important to love and to do good- and to everyone. Those you love, and those who you struggle finding love for. As this verse says, it is also important to do so with the right attitude. It really helps you grow to love people. I have such a strong testimony on service. It brings blessings and happiness. Challenge: Wake up each morning, and before you leave the house, serve someone! Unload the dishwasher for your mom, make your brother's bed, write a letter to a missionary, do your little sister's hair- be creative! Something simple to start your day off right. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Alma 57:21 ~~~~~~~~~~~~ First off, Happy Mother's Day everybody. Sorry I've been gone for so long. Often times we overlook the role of the mother. Mothers are teachers, comforters, supporters. I, personally, owe all that I am to the wonderful example and teacher that my mother is and has been to me. These stripling warriors- 2,000 young men- gained their faith because of their amazing mothers, who taught them. I have a huge testimony of the role of the mother. Mothers are such a central part of God's Plan. I know that because my mom is always the one that has been there for me, listens to me, teaches me, and supports me. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Challenge: Go tell your mom how much you love her! And don't stop once Mother's Day is over. SHOW her you love her! Leave her notes, make her bed, clean the kitchen. Never stop showing gratitude to your mom!

{D&C 19:37} ----------- This scripture really hit me. The greatest joys in my life have come from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I don't know how I would get through life without the peace and hope it brings me. I was thinking of all the people who are out there that don't have this amazing gospel in their lives. We need to tell it to them! WE NEED TO SPREAD THE TRUTH! We need to give them the opportunity to feel the love and happiness that we feel every day with the gospel in our lives. You might think people aren't interested, but it doesn't hurt to try. If they aren't interested, they'll tell you so, but it is better than not trying. But TRY! Everyone deserves a chance to have Christ's love in their lives. And this scripture clearly tells us to proclaim it to everyone. REJOICE! With a loud voice! Proclaim Christ's love, through word and deed, and spread the truth! Blessed be the name of the Lord God! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Challenge: SPREAD THE GOSPEL. We all have someone in our lives that needs the Gospel. Let others feel the joy and peace that Christ brings. Pray, pray, pray, every day, for an opportunity to spread the Gospel. Don't be scared, replace your fear with faith, and God will help you know what to do.

{Alma 40:12} If we had this scripture on our minds at all times, we would be so much happier, and so much more diligent in choosing the right. After we die- which we all will- THAT is what matters. Not how popular we are, not how pretty we were, not how many likes we got on our photo. Even if you were a world- famous singer, that wouldn't account for your happiness after this life. Then what does? The choices you make. It may be hard sometimes to CTR here on earth. But that is what matters! After this life- for ALL ETERNITY- we will receive joy, peace, and happiness, if we are righteous here. Doesn't that sound amazing?! Life is hard; it is hard to meet the expectations that the world has for you. But you don't have to. Live up to what God wants you to be! A faithful, diligent, loving child of God. That is what we need to do to achieve happiness. In the end, that is what matters. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Search. Ponder. Pray.

{Mosiah 16:8} Isn't this so great? Death is one of this biggest challenges that we go through in this world. Losing someone that you love can bring so much pain and anguish. This scripture brings so much comfort to your life. You WILL see your loved ones again. Forever and ever and ever. You can be with your family for all eternity. The Gospel is so amazing, it's just so comforting to know all this. That we will all be together forever, because of Christ's sacrifice for us. He is our brother and wants us to be happy and to see Him again. It's just all so amazing. So if any of you are going through hard times with sickness or death among your loved ones, I just want you to know that you will see them again. This earth life is just a blink compared to our eternal life. You will be together forever with your loved ones. We will be together forever. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Search. Ponder. Pray.

{Painting by Greg Olsen} First off... This is my first time ever trying this new style. I was thinking of ways to improve my page. Do you guys like it? Please I need honest feedback! Thanks so much! -2 Nephi 22:2- I LOVE this scripture. We can trust The Lord. If something doesn't turn out quite how we want it to, don't lose hope. God has a better plan for you than you can even imagine. There have been times in my life when I've said "why me? Why this?" But have found out that God did in fact have something better in store for me. Trust him! He will not lead you astray! He is your salvation. Don't be afraid. He will guide you if you ask. Christ is our Savior. Like in this picture, the girl has total trust that she will be saved. And she will be. Christ is saving her, because He loves her. And He loves you. So trust Him, put your faith in Him, because He has a plan for you. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Search. Ponder. Pray.

Mosiah 3:12 This scripture is just such a great reminder to always choose the right. We know what's right, we know what we don't feel comfortable doing, so why do we sometimes choose wrong? It's hard to choose the right sometimes. But the important thing is that we do it. Listen to the Spirit! If you don't feel comfortable doing something, being somewhere, hanging around with someone, then don't! If it's completely unavoidable (like in class) pray for peace and guidance on what you can do to keep the Spirit. (Sing a hymn in your heart, possibly) We just have to remember that none of these worldly pleasures will bring joy. Salvation only comes through repentance and faith in Christ. Listen to Him, follow the promptings of the Spirit, and choose the right! I promise it will make you happier. CHALLENGE: We all have some habit that we know we should quit. Some temptation that keeps pressuring us. Pray toGod for strength to overcome and do your best. It may be hard, but it'll be worth it! You can do it. God WILL help you. Search. Ponder. Pray.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Here's a few fantastic scripture words of wisdom! These are so great. I love how it says rejoice. Shouldn't we be SO happy that we have the Gospel in our lives?! It's so extraordinary. It brings so much peace and happiness. So rejoice evermore! Pray without ceasing. Pray always! About anything. Sometimes you might feel like "God doesn't care about that" but he does! He's your Father. What's important to you is important to Him. Pray anytime, anywhere. And give thanks! Look at all of our blessings! The Atonement, forever families, friends, the beautiful world we live in, having the Gospel. The list is endless. Give thanks to God for all He has given you! Just these few scriptures teach us so much. I challenge you all to ponder more on the things God has given you and thank Him for them. It'll bless your life, I promise. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Search. Ponder. Pray.

Alma 40:12 I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while! I've been busy and hopefully I'll be able to post more again. So this scripture is just amazing. I just want you all to know that no matter what you're going through, how lonely you are, how stressed you are, that it will all be OK. Continue to choose the right and in the end you will be at complete peace and have a fullness of joy. You'll live with those who you love for eternity and live with our Heavenly Father again. With the help of Christ you can get through this. It'll soon be over, and you'll be free from every sorrow and be at peace forever. That is what is so amazing about the gospel. It'll bring eternal joy. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Search. Ponder. Pray.
