a NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon


Happy Sunday!  Here’s another pic from our hike in Zion National Park.  For today’s short sermon, I’ll pair this photo with a talk called ‘The Reflection in the Water’.

“Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, using the analogy of the ugly duckling, explains that young adults can find great purpose in knowing who they are.”

Here’s a small snippet of the talk after the Ugly Duckling analogy:

“…most people have felt sad or inadequate at one time or another. It’s natural to have times of self-doubt or unhappiness. The question, why should I go on living, is simply another wording of the age old phrase penned by William Shakespeare 400 years ago, and uttered by millions of Hamlets the world over since that time, “To be or not to be, that is the question. But Shakespeare was wrong. He was wrong.”  

President Uchtdorf goes on to suggest some edits to Shakespeare’s Hamlet and then comments that he understands that such an edit would hopelessly ruin one of the greatest literary masterpieces of all time!  President Uchtdorf is such a great speaker and wise teacher!  I loved this sermon!  I hope you do too.

Have a terrific day! Read and learn something NEW!



a NEW quote that i somehow missed


Happy Sunday!  Here’s a quote I ran across recently which I LOVED…and I also love that it is referenced to this great man:  President Dieter F Uchtdorf!  However, I’m pretty sure I listened to this talk (I just don’t remember that quote…maybe I just needed my memory jogged!)  The talk was ‘Grateful in Any Circumstances”.  Such good advice!


Have a great day!  Do or Learn or jog your memory with something NEW!

ps: This quote was on pinterest and it wasn’t linked to a site where I could give credit to the graphic designer.  Sorry!  (I really would if I could :o)
