He Did What We Could Not Do For Ourselves

“Years ago there was a little one-room schoolhouse in the mountains of Virginia where the boys were so rough that no teacher had been able to handle them. “A young, inexperienced teacher applied, and the old director scanned him and asked: ‘Young fellow, do you know that you are asking for an awful beating?

The Best Way To Pay Tribute To Those We’ve Lost

“Every one of us has wept at a death, grieved through a funeral, or stood in pain at a graveside. I am surely one who has. We should all praise God for the assured resurrection that makes our mortal separations temporary and gives us the hope and strength to carry on.”   – Dallin H. Oaks

All of us have moments of fear, doubt, anxiety, and loneliness in our lives. Some battle it only occasionally while others may deal with it on an ongoing basis, but I have yet to meet anyone who hasn’t dealt with those emotions in their life.  One of the most powerful talks on this subject was
