Alexa: Everything has beauty but not everyone can see



I love this quote so much! It's saying how you need to look for the good in everything. "Always look on the bright side of life." 


Life is such a wonderful test that we get to take. We need to look for the good and enjoy what were given no matter what that is.  "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."

Alexa: When the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails.


I love this quote so much because it's saying how even when there are storms in your life, you can adjust to it and the wind will not blow you away. 

Helaman 5:12
"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

We must build our foundation on the Gospel and on the words of Christ. I absolutely love how it says "a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." If you heed the words of the prophet and listen to the teaching of the scriptures, you will build a foundation where you cannot fall.

The Random Quote Challenge

My dad was watching a video about the hurricane in Florida that's happening right now. We started talking about how these are the signs of the second coming. Soon, the whole family joined in the conversation and my mom said that the second coming is just going to creep up on us if we're not paying close attention. They're so many signs that are coming fulfilled right now as we speak and the world is denying it all. Scientists are predicting many more severe hurricanes, tornadoes, and storms, that are heading our way due to global warming. This is not the case. If we keep telling ourselves these things then we will not be prepared when the second coming hits. I thought that I would make this this week's "Random Quote Challenge" topic for the week. I can't wait to hear your wonderful quotes!

My sister's wanted to make a picture quote together so I helped them. They each picked out a font then we did the rest together and this is how it turned out.

The Random Quote Challenge

I'm going to start a new challenge called The Random Quote Challenge. Each week I will select a random item or topic and each of you can post something involving that object. You can make a picture quote, find a talk, video, quote, picture, whatever you want. This week's item is a boat. So get creative and post it on this blog. Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Alexa: Love is really spelled T-I-M-E


"Our second key relationship is with our families. Since “no other success can compensate for failure” here, we must place high priority on our families. We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner and family home evening and by just having fun together. In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time. Taking time for each other is the key for harmony at home. We talk with, rather than about, each other. We learn from each other, and we appreciate our differences as well as our commonalities. We establish a divine bond with each other as we approach God together through family prayer, gospel study, and Sunday worship." -Dieter F. Uchtdorf (Of things that matter most, Ensign Nov. 2010)
