Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

". . . thank Thee God without ceasing . . ." 1 Thes. 2:13

Let us all make it a goal to enjoy this month with gratitude. I am grateful for all of you, for life, and for the beauty found everywhere in this world in people, places, and things. I am grateful to know there is a God and a Savior and that thy love and watch over us. There are so many blessing I wish to express my thanks for that the list could be a mile long. I have a little book called, The Secret Gratitude Book, that has pages wherein I record my gratitude. The author suggests we say, "Thank you," twenty times before we write anything. It fills the heart and helps the mind ponder the richness of our blessings.

A dear friend of mine has been posting things she is thankful for every day since November 1. Reflecting on the things she is listing has helped me realize more the things I have been taking for granted. This video clip below is lovely.

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving
