      This morning while I was reading in the Book of Mormon In Alma 50 I came across a few verses that really stuck out to me about happiness and doing what the Lord has asked. In verse 20 it talks about how the Lord is going to bless those people when they are doing what they are supposed to and how He is not going to bless us when we don't keep the commandments. Then I really like what verse 23 said : "But behold there never was a happier time among the people of Nephi, since the days of Nephi, than in the days of Moroni, yea, even at this time, in the twenty and first year of the reign of the judges." So we see that when we do what we are supposed to the Lord is going to bless us with all the happiness we can imagine! Lets all strive to be a little better and make those changes in our lives to come closer to Christ!

Two Brothers

      I watched this video yesterday at a meeting we had and it is really a great video that talks about two brothers and their relationship. It made me really think about whats really important and are we really doing the things we need to do, to show our thanks to the ones we love and are close to. I hope you will take the time to watch this short movie and feel the spirit it will bring into your life as you ponder the ones that mean the most to you.

Helping Others

            This past weekend was Conference and there was a lot of great stuff to learn and take in. But one of the biggest things that stuck out to me would have to be on the saturday morning session of the conference. It was a talk given by Elder Henry B Eyring. If you would like to Listen to the whole talk you can by going to . There was a phrase he used that I liked. He said "The lord has made it possible for anyone who wants to help to do it." There are so many of us who are capable of helping others but either don't take the time to do it or are just to busy sometimes. Other times we just feel like we don't really need to help others. I was also reminded of the covenants or promises that we make with our Father in heaven when we get baptised. We are our brothers keeper, we do need to be looking out for all those that are in need of help. So my thought is that we should all try to take a few minutes out of our busy lives to help someone else that might be in need. Then the Lord is going to bless others through us and He will also bless us for putting forth effort in helping his other children.

Dont Tempt The Lord

   This morning I was reading in Alma in the Book of Mormon. They where explaining there money system and what everything was worth. usually I just skim through it to get by it but I actually read thru it this time and I actually understood the next verses really well when Zeezrom tries to tempt Amulek. He was offering him a lot of money if he would deny God. But Amulek showed his faith and didn't even hesitate. It covers it in Verses 21-23 of chapter 11 in Alma.
           "And this Zeezrom began to question Amulek, saying: Will ye answer me a few questions which I shall ask you? Now Zeezrom was a man who was expert in the devices of the devil, that he might destroy that which was good; therefore, he said unto Amulek: Will ye answer the questions which I shall put unto you?
           And  Amulek said unto him: Yea, if it be according to the Spirit of the Lord, which is in me; for I shall say nothing which is contrary to the Spirit of the Lord. And Zeezrom said unto him: Behold, here are six onties of silver, and all these will I give thee if thou wilt deny the existence of a Supreme Being.
          Now Amulek said: O thou child of hell, why tempt ye me? Knowest thou that the righteous yieldeth to no such temptations"

        Amulek was very wise in how he frazed his response he said that you don't understand that the righteous people wont give in to Satan's temptations. So if we are truly doing what we should be Satan will have no power over us. We will be able to live happy lives and see the joy that comes from doing what it right.
