You Are Doing Better Than You Think You Are

This Mother’s Day I was asked to give a talk in Sacrament Meeting and my Sister told me I should post it here to the blog. So here it is;) And remember, this all applies certainly to mothers, but also to any person, young or old, in any station in life!

Mother’s Day is such a great day! We get to celebrate our Mothers and Motherhood. A day dedicated to all women of all ages. A day probably second only to Valentine’s Day for the most last-minute flower purchases in America!

It’s a beautiful day!

Isn’t it?

You Mothers out there, is Mother’s Day a beautiful day for you? Or is it a little stressful? Is it a day of comparison for you? A day that perhaps has become a vivid reminder of all the things you are not? Of all the ways you are failing as a Mother? Of all the ways everyone else is better than you? (keep reading)

How To Overcome A Pornography Addiction Easily

How To Overcome A Pornography Addiction Easily

I used to be addicted to pornography.

I’m not anymore.

Many people believe that once you are an addict, you will always be an addict and you must be extra careful your whole life or you’ll fall back in.

You don’t have to be an addict for even one more second.

Let me teach you how to overcome a pornography addiction easily.

After All We Can Do

“After All We Can Do” Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

“For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.” (2 Nephi 25:23; emphasis added)

Now, we discuss at length what Nephi actually means by this statement in a different post, but let’s keep this one simple.

Many members of the Church think this scripture means that we must do everything that is possible to do to “earn our part of salvation and only after we have completely exhausted ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually will Jesus come in with His grace and “make up the difference”; and pay the “rest of the price” of our salvation. The part that we couldn’t pay ourselves.

This idea is false.

This is not how salvation is obtained.

Understanding Nephi’s Phrase: “After All We Can Do”

If you haven’t read our shorter post, entitled After All We Can Do Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means”, we’d recommend reading it before continuing. This post is intended to expound upon that one.

Our purpose here is to explore and understand Nephi’s words:

“For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.” (2 Nephi 25:23; emphasis added)
