Peace, Joy, Love,
Aren't these the things you want when things all around the world are so chaotic?
Scriptures give us hope, that even when things get so crazy, and there is no way things will work out.
There is a path of peace. Tranquility, and serenity can enter your life, no matter what your situation is.
Peace, I leave with you. My peace, I give unto you...Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I have felt this peace in my life. It has healed wounds in my heart, helped me grow, and overcome a lot.
It has given me great hope in great things to come. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior.
I know he suffered and died to bring all of us these wonderful gifts.
Peace, Joy, Love,

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure.
I'm finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tinted visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits, or popularity.
I don't have to be right, first recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am lifted up in prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my goal is heaven.
My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table with the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won't give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ.
I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach 'till all know, and work till He stops me and when He returns for His own He will have no problem recognizing me-for it is His banner that I carry.

"Come unto me all ye that labor, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Elder Conan Grames, a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving with his wife, Cindy, in Japan, spoke with Utah and national journalists today about his experience during the recent earthquake in Japan.

Why do people belittle others' beliefs?
When did God command us to hate our enemies, and do evil to those that hate us, and spitefully use us?

One of the newest miracles on this Earth is in the arms of my big Sister.
A beautiful, precious soul, sent to this world to start his journey.
Life is amazing. Be grateful for yours, and live your life the best you can!
