Choose the Right

"If we choose the wrong road, we choose the wrong destination."
— Dallin H. Oaks
Many choices we make today, will lead us to the life we will live for the rest of our lives. Whether it's a major decision of career, school, place to live or the small choices in life that will shape our character. Such as being honest, working hard and being charitable. We have the right to make our own choices, right or wrong. Since we have that right we are then responsible for the decisions we make and ultimately willing to accept the results of our choices, because we OURSELVES made then in the beginning, no one else made them for us. In every choice we make, I would encourage all to seek God's counsel, guidance and inspiration, before we think "I got this!" 

Do what's right because it's the right thing to do!

Be Responsible

"I hope that you will learn to take responsibility for your decisions."
      -Thomas S. Monson 

Responsibility includes honesty, integrity, reliability and much more. When we remove ourselves from excuses, strive to do what is right and take responsibility for our actions we rise above the natural man who would rather lie, cheat and blame others to be successful in life. 

Be who you want to be, not what they want to see!

Too Busy?

Often times in my life, and i'm sure in all those who read this, our lives become hectic, overwhelming, stressful, caotic, frustrating, restless, disordered, or whatever it may be. We feel we have too much on our plate and we just can't do it. This is some great advice I found..
"When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives."
— Ezra Taft Benson
When we rely on God, he helps us see those things that aren't so important that fill our time, and those things we should focus and do more! I know when we put God first, all other things fall in line. We are happy and feel we can accomplish all that sits before us each day!
