“Now, this is the truth. We humble people, we who feel ourselves sometimes so worthless, so good-for-nothing, we are not so worthless as we think. There is not one of us but what God’s love has been expended upon. There is not one of us that He has not cared for and caressed. There is not one of us that He has not desired to save and that He has not devised means to save. There is not one of us that He has not given His angels charge concerning. We may be insignificant and contemptible in our own eyes and in the eyes of others, but the truth remains that we are children of God and that He has actually given His angels … charge concerning us, and they watch over us and have us in their keeping.”
George Q. Cannon
He cannot forget us; we are engraven upon the palms of his hands.
“If you are on the right path, it will always be uphill. To choose the Lord’s way is to choose higher ground.
The Lord is anxious to lead us to the safety of higher ground, away from the path of physical and spiritual danger. His upward path will require us to climb."
Henry B. Eyring
“You cannot lift another soul until you are standing on higher ground than he is. You must be sure, if you would rescue the man, that you yourself are setting the example of what you would have him be. You cannot light a fire in another soul unless it is burning in your own soul.”
Harold B. Lee
"We must not lose hope. Hope is an anchor to the souls of men. Satan would have us cast away that anchor. In this way he can bring discouragement and surrender. But we must not lose hope. The Lord is pleased with every effort, even the tiny, daily ones in which we strive to be more like Him. Though we may see that we have far to go on the road to perfection, we must not give up hope."

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Your once upon a time is now for a moment, think back about your favorite fairy tale. In the story the main character must overcome Adversity…..you will experience your own adversity…. It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop…Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your “once upon a time” is now.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Jesus said, ‘I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men.’ Start with yourself, and forgive others as well. If God will not remember our repented-of sins, then why should we? Avoid wasting time and energy reliving the past.”
Anthony D. Perkins
Why Wish Upon a Star when you can pray to the one who created it.
"The voice of the Lord is unto all men" The heavens are not closed, God is not silent, and each of us can, individually, receive specific and personal revelation from God that can bless us with direction, insight, and comfort.
“The Lord’s purposes are often accomplished as we pay heed to the guidance of the Spirit. I believe that the more we act upon the inspiration and impressions which come to us, the more the Lord will entrust to us His errands.”
Thomas S. Monson
“Heavenly Father is ever mindful of those who need, who seek, who trust, who pray, and who listen when He speaks. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. God’s gift becomes our blessing.
May every heart open wide and welcome Him this day and always.”
Thomas S. Monson
