Read the Holy Scriptures


Last week at Relief Society class I taught about "Scriptures". This lesson can be found in our Church Gospel Principles book. I was ( always ) nervous when I taught. Imagine teaching women ages 18 years old and up at our church, Most of them are pioneers of our Church, mothers, older and experienced than me, that really stresses me! But of course, as the popular scripture verse says, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding, In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." (Prov.3:5-6.), i always made it. Let me share with you my lesson about Scripture last Sunday.

Like prayer, Scriptures are one of the greatest blessings we have while we are here on earth. Reading the Holy Scriptures can answer to every question we may have in life. Many times in my life, when I feel disappointed or discouraged, confused maybe afraid, I turn to scriptures, search for comforting words and feel the closeness of our Savior. We are truly blessed to have Scriptures available to us today. We can read them whenever we want, like whenever we are driving we can listen to them anytime we want, Certain phones will let you download scriptures, If you are talking to a friend or co worker and you need an example to help express your point about some doctrine you have access to those materials at your fingerprints.

Oftentimes, we neglect our duty to read the Holy Scriptures. Do you know that holy scriptures are like letters from home? Imagine being away from your family and receiving a letter from them and not bothering to open it or read it? This is what happens when we don't read these precious records. The holy scriptures are like letters from home reminding us how we can draw closer to our Father in Heaven. And if we desire to avoid the evils of this world, we must feed our minds with the truth and righteousness found in the scriptures, and if we do this we will grow closer to God as we read, ponder the scriptures.

I know that if we will read the Holy scriptures everyday, glorious promises will then be ours. We can have a sure testimony of our Father in Heavens love for us. We can know the gospel plan and the blessings that come through obedience and right choices. I know these things are true in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

All in one park

Here in Dallas Fort Worth, where we live. There is a lot of amusement park entertainment you can visit to keep your children busy this summer.  As a mother of three active kids. I love to visit places where my kids can enjoy and learn new things. Since my kids love being outdoors, going to the different park is always in our top list.  In the summer, going to the waterpark is our past time. Just recently, we found a new park in our area, not too far from where we live.  The name of the park is Clayton W. Chandler Park which is located in Mansfield, TX.  My kids love this park because it has splash pad which runs from 10 am to 8pm in the summer for free! Their playground area has a mini obstacle which is great for kids ages 3-10. If you have a teenager who loves sports, they have 2 basketball half court, sand volleyball, tennis court, baseball field, skateboard plaza, 1/4 mile walking trail with fitness stations and a half-acre pond stocked for fishing. And most importantly their conc…

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time. If nothing else just to set a good example for your l…
