I always savor my rest day. It is needed and enjoyed. It's part of the program and gives my body time to repair and rest from the rigors of training. .

And #JustLikeThat....every Mormon #Missionary has left the country of #Madagascar. 💔😢 Schy was one of the lucky few that gets to continue on with President Foote & got to have one last Sunday in country (for now). #PrayForMadagascar🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 and all of these missionaries who are dealing with the heartbreak of leaving these people they love so much, who need so much help, in their time of crisis. #BubonicPlague 💔

Schy is continuing his mission for now on the French island of Reunion, east of #Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. He was speaking #Malagasy before, now he will be learning French.😱 His Pday is Tuesday, so we will have to wait to hear more until then. We've heard very little from him so far....but the one sentence that pierced my heart was when he said "these last three days have by far been the hardest days of my life." I've never heard him say anything like that before....but I know he's grateful to be staying close by, in hopes he will return one day soon....& looking forward to the next adventure. 💔❤️💔❤️ #MissionaryMom #lds #LIGHTtheWORLD #StripplingWarriors

In the Old Testament, the concept of repentance is conveyed by various forms of the Hebrew word לשוב (lashuv), which means "to turn around," "turn away," or "to return." What beautiful imagery lies in this understanding!

Satan, the sleaziest of salesmen, masterfully hocks his counterfeits as the easily attainable, carnally desirable counterparts to the Lords blessings. As we accept these lies, we turn our back on the Lord, hoping instead that politicians, pleasing philosophies, or popular culture will bequeath to us the desires of our heart. But by turning away from the Lord, we turn our back on The Light.

As a natural consequence, with our backs toward The source of Truth and Light, a mosaic of dark shadows are cast by thousands of objects vying for our focus and attention. Amid this shadowy backdrop, clarity is lost, reality distorted, and blessings obscured.
It is only in turning around, or returning to the Lord, that we are able to see things in the true light, or put scripturally, to see "things as they really are," (Jacob 4:13). A call to repentance, then, is not the heartless rebuke of a judgmental dictator, but the loving invitation offered by a compassionate Savior, succinctly summed by his sincere expression, "Come unto me." Repentance is the desire to turn away from sin, and return to righteousness. It is turning away from fear, and returning to faith. It is turning away from worldliness, and returning to Godliness.

Elder Holland said, “You can change anything you want to change, and you can do it very fast. That’s another satanic sucker punch—that it takes years and years and eons of eternity to repent. It takes exactly as long to repent as it takes you to say, “I’ll change”—and mean it. Of course there will be problems to work out and restitutions to make. You may well spend—indeed you had better spend—the rest of your life proving your repentance by its permanence. But change, growth, renewal, and repentance can come for you as instantaneously as for Alma and the sons of Mosiah.” So if you don't like the direction you're facing, turn toward the Light

"The greatest miracle happens when we humbly approach our father in heaven in prayer." --Linda S. Reeves. I like to pick quotes that are meaningful in my life at the moment and this one hits home. Prayers can be said in any moment. We may not be perfect, but God is there to help us if we but turn to Him. .

Heavenly Father’s ultimate desire for His children is what President Monson called “eternal life in the kingdom of God,” which is exaltation in families. This is more than salvation. #35in35 #thefamilyproclamationtotheworld
