Pres. Hinckly Quotes and Bonus

"People wonder what we do for our women. I tell you what we do: we get out of their way and look with wonder at what they are accomplishing." GBH

"Read the scriptures to your children. You may not think they understand. They won't understand everything you read. But they will develop within themselves a feeling, an attitude, a spirit that will be wondeful. And I don't hesitate to promise you that the day will come, if you nurture your children and love and teach in righteousness, you will get on your knees with tears in your eyes and thank the Lord for His blessing you." GBH

"[The] test [of life] is part of the purpose God had for us in the Creation. "The Prophet Joseph Smith gave us the Lord's description of the test we face. Our Heavenly Father created the world with His Son, Jesus Christ. We have these words to tell us about the purpose of the Creation: 'We will go down, for there is space there, and we will take of these materials, and we will make an earth whereon these may dwell; And we will prove them herewith, to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them' (Abraham3:24-25). "So, the great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God's commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage. And the tragedy of life is to fail in that test and so fail to qualify to return in glory to our heavenly home." Henry B. Eyring

President Hinckley is just still so awesome. he recognizes the great work that can be done by women...and only women. ;)
hopefully you'll get done what needs to be done this weekend. unpacking and organzing a house is always, always such a chore.
i enjoy moving for the fact that it is the perfect opportunity to clean up and get rid of stuff...but i don't enjoy the unpacking...good luck to you!
p.s. i still need your e-mail address. :)

Hi Sarahbear,

I really wanted to leave a long comment, to make up for lost time, but I have been reading everyone's blogs all morning and my kids are screaming at me for some lunch now and I got neighborhood kids over also, it is just getting hectic in here, so I've got to cut it short. It was really good to talk to you yesterday! and just to remind you about my choice for 'Edward', the guy's name is Vitas, and the best video to check him out in is called "Pocelui". That is russian for "kiss as long as eternity" and you can search for it by either the english or russian title on youtube. Sorry I don't have a link, but let me know if you find it!! I'd be glad to dicuss all the reasons why he is perfect to be Edward!!!
