Here am I
I will try

General Women’s Meeting
Along the covenant path
Help others stand up tall
This is our Father’s plan
And we must give our all
Our cortisol levels are high
To help us start our day
And then they taper off by night
So we’re relaxed and sleep okay.
When someone is a stressed wreck
In a state of constant fight or flight
There is a reverse affect
And you are way too revved up at night
To get your hormones back on track
Think about those you love, all day
Balance your nerves and cardiac
Then you will sleep the night away
Sisters are there
Through the thick and thin
To offer care
From love shared within
Sister Bonnie L Oscarson
A house divided will fall
And all the fruit found thereof
Let us work to give our all
To build God’s kingdom of love
Matthew 12 read along
A moral force of women
Works as an influence for good.
To help the work of Heaven,
And exemplify womanhood.
What is it women can possess
That sets them apart from men?
The intuitive way they impress
The need for goodness within.
A virtuous woman’s strength
Is greatly needed today;
To instill courage and faith
That our covenants we obey.
As trends and forces more combine
And the conscience of many dims;
Satan works hard to undermine
Society’s definitions for sins.
So more than ever we need
Women who will help the rising youth;
By example to then lead
Them from high places to never move.
Elder D. Todd Christofferson
The Moral Force of Women
Ensign, November 2013
On a set course of faithRemind yourself to prayGod’s promises are sureAs we strive to obeyWelcome peace to your heartRepent. Let go of fearSeek the scriptures for truthAnd feel God’s love appear
President Boyd K. Packer
The Key to Spiritual Protection
November Ensign, 2014
Peace can be settled in the heart of each
who turns to the scriptures and unlocks
the promises of protection and redemption.
What lack I yet
To follow Christ?
And be perfect
Before His eyes
What can I give
Away to know
His ways to live
To learn and grow
Look every which way around.The Lord’s love is so profound.That He suffered for everyone
To redeem, atone, and ransomPeople Watch and Ponder the Immensity of Christ’s Love
what is the difference between redeem, ransom, and atone? Does one build on another? I would love comments??? http://jesuschrist.lds.org/SonOfGod/eng/his-life-and-teachings/articles/the-atonement-of-jesus-christredeem- purchase back, pay the dept- He took on all our afflictions and sins.ransom-paying the price to free another- He paid the price of the fall- of physical/spiritual death for us.atonement- He made reconciliation (at-one-ment) possible by fulfilling the demands of justice.
For everyone, Jesus diedMake a circle. You’re insideLet His love surround youAnd guide the things you do
Jesus suffered pain for all.
He took upon Him every sinHe redeemed us from the fall.And came to know us from within.
Eternity hung in the balance
In the Garden of Gethsemane
It was our one solitary chance
For forgiveness of sins…. so many
Death’s grave is the portal
To become immortal
This through Jesus our friend
Who loves us without end
Because of Jesus Christ, we are assured that the grave is not our destination, merely the portal to immortality and eternal life.
There’s a warm feeling in my heart
When I read the Book of Mormon
The Spirit begins to impart
And revelation starts forming
Love will glowIn your heart to shineThere to showThis is but a signOf God’s giftto the hearts of manWhen we liftAnd serve all we can
May knowledge pour down from Heaven aboveUpon each Latter-Day SaintThat all may find His mysteries, there ofAnd know who is mighty to save
Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
There was something in our Lord’s descent
That made man’s ascent possible
With all our frailties, he could lament
And make sin’s stains then washable
He descended beneath all things
And mankind’s sins became His
A death’s sentence, for our doings
Called…though He’d done naught amiss
Then, He willingly submitted
To this gruesome form of death
As they tortured, mocked, and spitted
And caused pain with every breath
Though, they pierced His healing hands,
His pure heart, and His feet we are to follow
When He died, He broke the bands
Of death, in two days from the morrow
Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him,
saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
23:40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear
God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 23:41 And we indeed
justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath
done nothing amiss.
Death is not our journey’s endAs through the veil we’ll passUnto our Lord- our dear friendWhere love will ever last

Who can ask for more
Than having a good boy
Who turns to the Lord
And serves Him with great joy
With a calm body and voice
Never, ever sound angry
You can make the better choice
Are strictly sound
For they better choose when
Safety is found
The home is a warm safe nest
Where we learn to be our best
Where self-government is sought
As principles are taughtDo any of these scenarios sound familiar?
If any of these scenarios sound familiar or if you’re just looking to become a better parent, then you are invited to attend a parenting seminar by Nicholeen Peck, a seasoned parenting coach, author of “Teaching Self Government: A House United”, foster parent, and mother of four children.
- Despite offering rewards or making threats, your kids just won’t do what you ask them to do
- You consider yourself calm and cool, but for some reason you lose it when your kids misbehave or act disrespectfully
- Generally you feel you’re doing all right as a parent, but you want to make sure that you stay connected to your children, especially through the teenage years
- Your teenage children are out of control and you don’t know what to do
- You want to have a calm, happy family from the start and be ready to handle any future problems peacefully.
