Mountaintops and Valleys

In the recent broadcast training for Seminaries and Institutes, Brother Randall Hall, Associate Administrator, Seminaries and Institutes of Religion, explained beautifully,
"As we glimpse the broad picture painted on the canvas of eternity and recognize that a loving, omnipotent, and omniscient Father in Heaven has a plan for our lives, we understand with increased clarity the potential of each of our students and children in the aeons to come. We are often filled with a sense of awe, a sense of gratitude, a sense of enthusiasm, and a zest for life. Our time on the mountaintop gives us strength and hope, even anticipation for what lies ahead. There comes a desire and determination to align ourselves more closely with the power and purposes of God and to be anxiously engaged in the great cause that permeates the universe—that of assisting in bringing 'to pass the immortality and eternal life of man' (Moses 1:39).
Our moments on the mountaintop can help us understand and remember why our efforts with our students and families are so important. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, in the last general conference, taught:'We need to be constantly reminded of the eternal reasons behind the things we are commanded to do. . . . '. . . The why inspires our souls. “. . . The why transforms. . . . '. . . Understanding the why . . . will help us to see the divine purpose of all of this. It will give us motivation and strength to do the right things, even when they are hard' (“The Why of Priesthood Service,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2012, 58–59, 61)."

September Liahona 2012 - President Henry B. Eyring

Today a dear friend send me his testimony and excitement about an article in the September 2012 Ensign.
He wrote, "You may want to inspire your missionaries to memorize the first line in President Eyring's September 2012 Ensign First Presidency Message. He says, 'God will put prepared people in the way of His prepared servants who want to share the gospel.' Isn't that inspiring? It really motivates me. I wish I could tell you some of the successes I am having as a missionary, but it might sound like bragging. But really, it is just evidence that what President Eyring says is true! All my love to you! Richard"

I am so thankful for such great friends and their encouraging and inspiring words!!

Sharing the Gospel Heart to Heart

"God will put prepared people in the way of His prepared servants who want to share the gospel. You have had that happen in your own life. How often it happens depends on the preparation of your mind and your heart." President Henry B. Eyring
