Chapters from our book of eternal possibilites

Worth remembering and thinking about from Sunday

--High Council Speaker Jim Anderson -
Patriarchal blessing contains chapters from our book of eternal possibilities

--High Council Speaker Daniel Hunt
come ye out from the wicked and be ye separate

- conversion is not just 'knowing' it is acting and thinking, it is
not just knowing something, it is becoming something

- final judgment is not a summation of our good acts and our bad acts, it is an evaluation of what we have become

- we cannot just show up and go through the motions, we must “be”

-Sunday School
Abraham 1:2 “And, finding there was greater happiness and peace and rest for me, I sought for the blessings of the fathers, … having been myself a follower of righteousness, desiring also to be one who possessed great knowledge, and to be a greater follower of righteousness, and to possess a greater knowledge, and to be a father of many nations, a prince of peace, and desiring to receive instructions, and to keep the commandments of God, I became a rightful heir…”

What are our desires? and what are we doing about it?

-Relief Society
In discussion where they are saying if it feels good it is the right thing and from God, Sister P pointed out that sometimes when we are about to do the right thing, Satan tries to stop us by filling us with fear. (works pretty well with me) When we are fearful, we should look at what is causing our fear.

We can choose our actions, but actions have consequences. Look ahead and choose your actions by the consequences you desire.
