May Issue: Conferencisms

Last night for FHE we hiked Ensign Peak. It is a leg burner for sure! This quote comes from a talk by Paul V. Johnson of the seventy about overcoming trials and challenges. I love when he said, "Sometimes we want to have growth without challenges and to develop without any struggle. But growth cannot come by taking the easy way."

June Issue: Commitment to Modesty

This article in the June issue is the story of how one mom taught the importance of modesty to her daughter. After being sealed in the temple to her husband and children she "went through her wardrobe and gave away most of her clothing. But she considered it a small sacrifice. She knew the blessings of the temple were better than any of those clothes."
After reading this article I realized that it is so important to teach my children about the blessings that come from obedience, and that dressing modestly is a way to prepare to go to the Temple.
I love this video about one young woman who is making a difference!

{I have more plans for May Issue Conferencisms. Luckily according to the challenge we have until the next General Conference to read the May issue!}
