The story of our divine potential

I covered an institute class last week and taught a lesson based on our divine potential. I don’t attend institute regularly myself. Aside from “graduating” the program about three times already, being a RSP is time-consuming and takes most of my nights anyway- and given the chance to visit an inactive or needy sister or […]

Preserve & protect the family

I taught Relief Society today and it was one of those lessons where I was just so happy to hear the wisdom, observations and testimonies of the women there. I associate with world class women, I really do. They’re young and they’re brilliant. They’re figuring life out and they’re learning and failing and forgiving and […]

By The Power of His Word

I was reading an assignment for Institute class recently. Among the readings was this, from The Book of Mormon, Jacob Chapter 4: 8. Behold, great and marvelous are the works of the Lord. How unsearchable are the depths of the mysteries of him; and it is impossible that man should find out all his ways. […]
