“The key to our success is not found in avoiding opposition but in facing it with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement.” W. Christopher Waddell
God doesn’t give us adversity for fun. The struggle is good. God wastes nothing. Opposition gets us where He wants us to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyone of us has struggles, whether seen or unseen. Today, whatever opposition looks like for you in life, in motherhood, in relationships, remember our Savior’s words:
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
In my #pathwayconnect class, we are asked to share what we’ve learned this week. I made this visual to share, from Elder Ashton’s talk titled, “one for the money”. I believe it is important to teach our children to work. This helps them feel grateful and confident in their abilities. I am striving to teach my children this, by words and by example. #ldsconf 🌷This is taken from the talk “One for the money”, by Elder Ashton.
I thought I was ready for this picture...but then I blinked...while taking a SELFIE. 🤷♀️🤦♀️ And so it is with life. You blink, you miss it. Live in the moment, cherish the good, thank heaven for the bad, & choose to be happy. 💜
"The Church is not an automobile showroom—a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.⠀
And are we not, all of us, in need of repair, maintenance, and rehabilitation?⠀
We come to church not to hide our problems but to heal them."⠀
— Dieter F. Uchtdorf

🔴What does it mean "The right person?" Does it mean prefect without weaknesses ? Or does it mean that there can't be challenges, opposition or things to figure out ? Heck no! I would be worried if everything would be color pink and happiness ! "There must be an opposition in all things," otherwise we couldn't learn and GROW ! How could we Grow in a relationship if there wouldn't be things to fix and things to improve ? .
🔴it's the right time as soon as BOTH sides are willing to WORK & SACRIFICE for the relationship. WILLINGNESS and SACRIFICE are key ! ⚠️
What's your journey? My journey for the past few months has been training to become a makeup artist. I've been spending my free time in classes, trying to build my confidence up until I feel like I can work on clients. On the spiritual side I've been focused on reverting back to the me I was almost twenty years ago when I had so much faith I literally exploded with it. I've been doing temple prep, making scripture time an integral part of my day, praying more, focusing super hard during sacrament service so I can absorb every ounce of goodness. I love a good old spiritual journey. I've come to understand more about myself in the past three months than I thought remotely possible. I am so grateful for this gospel. So pray, study and absorb as much as you can. This gospel is joy. Of that I testify #lds#latterdaysaints#latterdaysaint#ldsquote#ldsquotes#ldsblogger#ldsbloggers#ldsblog#mormon#mormons#mormonsgetit#mormonquotes#mormonquote

Remember How Merciful the Lord Hath Been (Apr’04) #NealAMaxwell
7. Two relevant memories for young fathers. When I was such, I had just received a phone call telling me of a friend’s death in an accident. I was sitting in the living room with tears streaking down my cheeks. Our young son, Cory, saw the tears as he passed in the hallway. I learned that he had anxiously assumed the tears were because he had disappointed me in some way. He didn’t know about the phone call. Brethren, we underestimate how genuinely and frequently our children want to please us.
