Inspirational Quotes

“Life is too short to have any regrets. So, love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, but it will be worth it.”

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

“Believe in yourself. Believe in your capacity to do great and good things. Believe that no mountain is so high that you cannot climb it. Believe that no storm is so great that you cannot weather it. You are not destined to be a scrub. You are a child of God, of infinite capacity. Believe that you can do it whatever it is that you set your heart on. Opportunities will unfold and open before you. The skies will clear when they have been dark with portent.” – Gordon B. Hinkley

“Your future is as bright as your faith.” – Thomas S. Monson

Thoughts on Trials

Something unfortunate or inconvenient happening to you?

Ask yourself:

Why am I in this situation? There must be a reason…
What does the Lord want me to do?
Who am I to help? Look around. It’s not always about you.
What do I need to learn from this experience?

Think about it. Pray about it. Listen to the promptings of the Spirit, then obey.

And finally, be blessed in ways you never could have imagined. Open your heart and mind to recognize these blessings. They’re all over!
