How do you reach
Those whom you teach?
Prepare them to hear
The spirit when there
You know you want to succeed
And manage well, what you do
You hold all the tools you need
To guide you and see you through
You know you want to succeed
And be in charge of yourself
Let the Holy Spirit lead
It is your best source of help
It is interesting that real freedom and success comes from turning our will to God. Then we have liberty as we are free from things that harm our spirit.
A group of small kids tried each fence,
To make sure that they were safe.
That all their needs would be met.
The greatest being respect.
Held by guidelines framed in truth
They test to prove all the rules
They push limits in their youth
And feel respect through reprove

Money cannot buy
The best things in life
That for which men die
Is achieved through strife
faith, manners, morals, respect, common sense, trust, patience, virtue, class integrity, love, honor
Get rid of deep creases
You wear on your face
As you live your faith
Iron it OUT
With every doubt
Iron it out
Hold to the rod
And turn to God
“Iron it out” is an idiom. It means work it out.
So filled with dispair
Missing Christ’s care
Thomas needed to see
To feel… to believe
It’s a rush to rush and it’s perfect to perfect
To improve so much that no one will object
…a play on homographs. They are spelled the same but don’t mean the same thing or even sound the same.
The fertile soil waits
to be turned and seeded.
The best fruit awaits.
Laborers are needed.
Read my poem and gift idea on Your LDS Blog where I am a guest blogger… http://www.yourldsblog.com/2014/06/15/fathers-day/
As a supportive rock
You are always there
You are my confidante
With advice to share
Thank you for your time
Your unconditional love
Your strength ever kind
That continually lifts me up
Let your faith see you through
All that comes your way
In all you say and do
Defend Christ always
In keeping with the Savior’s own experience, there has been a long history of rejection and a painfully high price paid by prophets and apostles, missionaries and members in every generation—all those who have tried to honor God’s call to lift the human family to “a more excellent way.”3“And what shall I more say [of them]?” the writer of the book of Hebrews asks. “[They] who … stopped the mouths of lions, “Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, … waxed vali… more »
All the smoke Was in place Then he spoke Watch her face! 🙂
Improve your health
To fight off disease
Fasting will help
As stem cells increase
How would this help someone with lupus? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/10878625/Fasting-for-three-days-can-regenerate-entire-immune-system-study-finds.html
The wave crashed
Like a wall
Its spray splashed
At us all
The boat swayed
It lurched right
We all prayed
And clutched tight
The deck dipped
Like a cup
We looked up
What a thrill
Screams did blend
Then, to still
The ride did end
Why do we pay money *and *wait in long lines to go on terrifying rides? Hope you are having wondering experiences with your family this summer.
The gospel imparts
Always in wondrous ways
Unto minds and hearts
As one seeks and obeys
Mother, don’t give up.
You know your (own son’s) (daughter’s) needs.
Nurture (him) (her) with love.
And teach (him) (her) to succeed.
The records we hold came at a high price
Of painstaking labor and sacrifice
The prophets share with us the words of Christ
For our learning they are filled with His light
Absolute morals do and will exist
Through repentance there is grace to enlist
Of the Atonement the scriptures witness
Offering examples of how to persist
The world teaches: There are no absolute morals. Every man prospers according to his genius and conquers according to his own strength. Whatever man does there is no crime. When we die that is the end, thereof.
Why let thoughts arise in the heart
That crowd out feelings of peace?
For the Lord is quick to impart
Power from on high to the meek
I am a man
And I demand
My rights to stand
Free on this land
Free to explore
What life is for
To seek for more
That’s from the Lord
A woman should not mock,
Ostracize, or slander
As with the Lord she walks
In thanks for what God hands her
It’s not the clothes you wear,
Or how you do your hair
That gives to you self-worth
It’s God who gave you birth
[image: Dead end sign by jhnri4 – Dead End sign.]
Income, health, love, and marriage
We all hate for great things to end
Still…we’ve much more to cherish
Through, Jesus, our eternal friend
We Are Not Made for Endings In light of what we know about our eternal destiny, is it any wonder that whenever we face the bitter endings of life, they seem unacceptable to us? There seems to be something inside of us that resists endings…. May we “live in thanksgiving daily” especially during the seemingly explainable endings that are part of mortality. May we allow our souls to expand in …more »
Read from the link, the story about one of the saints crossing the plains who sat at camp, tired and sick. He sang Come Come Ye Saints and then died in the night. When they buried him, they used the very rock he had been sitting on as his headstone.
For others, what can you do
In just a spare hour or two?

Look what Your LDS Blog did! Isn’t this a beautiful meme? Did you know there is a site to listen to L.D.S. music?
Have you ever been blessed beyond your dreams? First we bought this amazing house. Then, I was asked to babysit this piano while a wonderful couple went on their mission. It fills the house with music! Please go to Your LDS Blog and read about my feelings for the hymns. It is a wonderful blog and I have been asked to be a guest blogger! Wonderful!
Have you ever been blessed
Beyond your dreams?
Joy stirs within the breast
From God, it seems
Do you ever see something that causes a second look? The bird is real! And he was patient to stay there while I had to cross at a light. I have seen this statue while driving by and thought, “How cute!” “They are enjoying flowers!” But what is also happening is the bigger girl has just tied the shoe of the little girl. The statues may not be real But the bird reminded me of a day When I was sad and felt ill A white dove rested on my head to stay I picked it up and held it It was as small and fragile as my heart One of its legs was crippled And through our friendship the world seemed le…more »
Scholars, to think reason, and reflect
God’s truths will set you free
They are the roots to each precept
Which can guide your destiny
Come, feast on the best and greatest
Of those inspired before
Celebrate learning in the highest
Ponder what you’re here for
Teachers are the sunlight rays
That help scholarly seeds to grow
They are warm and full of praise
And from them buds of promise show
God’s own truths do make you free
To think, reason, and reflect
To achieve your destiny
When guided by each precept

In memory of those who’ve died
On this day, may we unite
And together walk side by side
Filled with love from freedom’s light
The soldier, homeward bound
Hides inward wounds to not delay
But soon depression’s found
As war’s horrors haunt freedom’s way
Part of the reason for military suicides is the rush to be homeward bound… while ignoring or not knowing how to heal from the inward wounds.
The dog tags of loved ones remain
Each with a soldier’s story to tell
Of lonely foxholes and pain
And of patriotism as well
Missing you Adam…
We may not have a Reagan,
George Washington, or Lincoln
But what we do have is *us** and*
Great pride for what they have done
It hits home…death
The battle isn’t over
The watch, at best
Falls on the first line leader
From the grassy slopes of Bunker Hill
On to the National Mall we find
The price of freedom is ever real
Some of the best blood was left behind

Jesus is a veteran
In an eternal war.
Unto all God’s children,
‘Tis our souls He fights for.

Looking for charity
Someone to help out
I offered carefully
My hat, filled with doubt
What do you think happens next? This image is titled Looking for Charity…
See the blessing in all things
Even in the worst that life brings
Let go of apprehension
And believe in intervention
This happened right here in LasVegas! The sad truth is this guy could probably change his profession and work on the strip. He is quite a gymnast! Suspected Burglar caught in the act: Cameras catch a burglar inside a valley family’s home.
Here is my attempt at a hymn…
The Good Shepherd
The good shepherd became the lamb
To perfectly lead His sheep
To succor them and understand
How best to tend and watchkeep
He came without spot
As God’s own blessed son
And selflessly He sought
His Father’s will to be done
He bore the sins of all mankind
Every sorrow, every pain
The trials of death and hell combined
He received our stripes and was slain
His blood…that we might drink
His flesh… that we might sup
He went beneath all things
So He might then lift us up
Today He calls us all by name
We, His sheep, can know His voice T… more »
Out of the past, the dark, and the dust
The scriptures come unto each of us
And from them light reveals God’s love,
His grace, and mercy from above
As a side note. I have held a replica of that wooden sword in this film. It has shards of obsidian embedded into it. It is supposed to be sharp enough to cut a horses head off.

Oh the human mind,
We wrestle with hopes and fears.
And the Lord so kind,
When we need Him, He appears.
Then, as we seek truth
His words warm and calm the soul.
We can know what’s true
For His peace helps us feel whole.
He feeds His flock
And walks with them
He knows each flaw
And sees within
He is The Way The Truth, The Light
And from the grave
His words give life
He suffered death
That we might live
The shepherd does, His lambs, uplift
He carries us, For Heaven’s sake

On the road to Emmaus
Two disciples spoke of Christ
They mourned the death of Jesus
Who was their hope of new life
Jesus came and walked with them
They knew not His voice or face
I am sure they, then, wept when
He vanished without a trace
For it was then that they knew
They had walked and supped with Him
Looking back… they had known, too
For their hearts had burned within
