This is for everyone that lives in Maricopa County. In order to help us get some grant money please go to this site and take the survey. This is contest to see what county gets the most votes. This will only take a few minutes


Thanks for your help.

If you do not live in Maricopa County then check with your local county to see if they are participating. (but it better be a smaller county then here so that we are not competing head to head)

Sunday's Lesson

On Sunday it was my turn to teach the lesson in Relief Society and my topic was "Delight in Service and Good Works"

I posted the following summary on the ward Relief Society page but since it is secured I also wanted to list it on my own blog so to share with others who are not members of my home ward.

Sunday there was a request for quotes used during the lesson to be posted. Most of the lesson was taken from Mary Ellen Smoot’s talk, “We Are Instruments in the Hands of God,” Ensign Jan 2001. There is where she listed 4 thing we can do to be better able to give service in a meaningful way.

“So how do we do it? Amid the pressures of life, how do we become the most effective instruments we can be in the hands of the Lord?

Number 1. Our own conversion must come first.
Number 2. We must wax “strong in the knowledge of the truth”.
Number 3. Service is a key to being an effective instrument.
Number 4. Love must undergird everything we do.

Here is the quote from President Uchtdorf that made an impact on me and I believe many of you as well.

“In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance. Let us open our eyes and see the heavy hearts, notice the loneliness and despair; let us feel the silent prayers of others around us, and let us be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to answer those prayers.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Happiness, Your Heritage,” Ensign, Nov 2008.

I pray that each of us can be effective instruments in the Lord's hands and remember to be the answer to other prayers.

Just a little help

I have posted links to two websites that I would like everyone to visit. Both of these businesses are owned by people that I hold dear to my heart. This is a great way for me to help them be noticed. Word of mouth is the best marketing.

* Papas Grow Sticks - This is a great product for anyone who moves a lot or is far from family. My dear friend and her husband make these great sticks that are portable to chart the growth of the children in our lives. Please take a minute and look at the site. I think you will find they are cute and fun.

* Marie Wright Photography - She is a great photographer in Southern California. She can handle weddings, portraits and many other things. She also has some photos of Southern California temples that are artistically done. Marie has been a blessing in our lives for years and I love seeing what she has done with the talent she has.
