"May we ever choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong. As we contemplate the decisions we make in our lives each day - whether to make this choice or that choice - if we choose Christ, we will have made the right choice."
Prophet Thomas S. Monson

"The choices we make determine our destiny."
I hope that everyone had a wonderful week!
A quick shoutout to Harry Lanuza. Happy Birthday man! I love you!
And congratulations to Chase Hughes on receiving his mission call to serve in El Salvador. You are going to love it man!
So this weekend we were able to watch conference and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people were excited when they heard about the temple that will be built in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Elder Jeffery R. Holland's talk to close this conference was so up-lifting. Everyone who was in the chapel with us paid so much attention.
Like my email said last week, we all have the choice to continue on applying the things we learn in general conference to our lives or not. The adversary will always be against us, but God will always be for us.
Also Thomas S. Monson's talk on choices:
"It has been said that the door of history turns on small hinges, and so do
people’s lives. The choices we make determine our destiny."
This statement given by the Prophet of God is true. The choices we make do determine our destiny. Like the example he used from Alice In Wonderland, we have two paths; to do good or to do bad, to follow God or follow Satan. Truly we know where we want to go, we know which path will take us there, we have the ability to choose.
"May we maintain the courage to defy the consensus. May we ever choose the
harder right instead of the easier wrong. As we contemplate the decisions we
make in our lives each day—whether to make this choice or that choice—if we choose Christ, we will have made the correct choice."
I know that we can do all things through Christ. And when we choose Christ, IF we choose Christ, we will be happy knowing we chose correctly. I know this is true and that a Prophet of God revealed this precious doctrine unto us. He lives and loves us and he is always guiding us to make the right choice. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Our son made a choice to serve an LDS mission and on April 12th, 2015 he found out his destiny!
I made a cake for my companion Elder Ortiz to celebrate his first transfer,
his first 6 weeks in Mozambique.
