When you reach for the stars you may not quite get one, but you won’t come up with a handful of mud either. ~ Leo Burnett
(*Thoughts from our missionary’s sixteen-year-old sister.*)
Should there be “mini-missions”?
I served a mission because it was expected.
This morning I speak about the power of the Book of Mormon and the critical need we have as members of this Church to study, ponder, and apply its teachings in our lives. The importance of having a firm and sure testimony of the Book of Mormon cannot be overstated.
Too often, the feeling of being in a dark hole, completely alone in my misery, overwhelms me. Feelings of worthlessness, inadequacy, and even stupidity assault me. When I am in this dark place within, compliments do not reach me. A visit from a friend might temporarily bring me to a happier place, but afterwards, I soon slip back into my mud hole of misery.
