Here's our first lesson for the girls who can't make it to Church.

I'm just copying and pasting the text, I'll include a link becuase it's an article from the New Era.

Unity:

Quote:
In the early days of the Church, the Lord commanded the Latter-day Saints to be one (see D&C 38:27). Throughout his life the Prophet Joseph Smith organized and unified the Saints to accomplish God’s work. He taught them, led them, and encouraged them to sacrifice their time, talents, and possessions for the cause of Zion. Here are some of his teachings about unity.

The Way to Do the Lord’s Work


“We are glad indeed to know that there is such a spirit of union existing throughout the churches, at home and abroad … ; for by this principle, and by a concentration of action, shall we be able to carry into effect the purposes of our God.”

“Unity is strength. … Let the Saints of the Most High ever cultivate this principle, and the most glorious blessings must result, not only to them individually, but to the whole Church.”

Removing Selfish Feelings


“Let the Saints remember that great things depend on their individual exertion, and that they are called to be co-workers with us and the Holy Spirit in accomplishing the great work of the last days; and … let every selfish feeling be not only buried, but annihilated.”

“Let us realize that we are not to live to ourselves, but to God; by so doing the greatest blessings will rest upon us both in time and in eternity.”

The Blessings of Unity


“By a concentration of action, and a unity of effort, we can only accomplish the great work of the last days … , while our interests, both temporal and spiritual, will be greatly enhanced, and the blessings of heaven must flow unto us in an uninterrupted stream.”
I know when we are all united in purpose we are able to do more. When I was in Young Womens there was one member, Lisa, who was supposed to be in our Laurel class, but she never came because her mother had stopped coming to church. Each of us in my class had tried to reactiviate her, becuase she went to our High school and she lived by me, but it hadn't really worked, only after we decided as a Young Womens group to reactivate her did it work, we all left her notes in her locker and she got invited to sit with us at lunch (all us LDS kids ate togther at lunch). and slowly she got reactivated. I know we couldn't have done it without being united in our purpose.

I know Heavenly Father lives and he loves us. He won't leave us when we are going through trials. All we have to do is turn to him and he will welcome us with open arms.

I love you girls!

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
