Friday's Fave's

Here are a few favorite quotes from facebook this past week:

When we want to speak to God, We pray.  And when we want him to speak to us, we search the scriptures.    Elder Robert D. Hale
Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice.    Henry Ford
By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer, we often find the answers to our own.  Dieter F. Uchtdorf
If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.  Calvin from Calvin and Hobbs.
You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.   Christopher Robin from Winnie the Pooh.
Heaven on Earth can be created at any address.  Greg Olsen (?)
And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord, and Great shall be the peace of thy children.  3 Nephi 22:3.
Let us never forget to pray.  God lives.  He is near.  He is real.  He is our Father.  He is accessible to all who will seek Him.  Gordon B. Hinckley.
There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it.  It is like falling in love.  (?)
Prepare and Send missionaries.  I hope that if at this conference I make no other point, I have made this one, that you sen your boys on missions.  The minute the come into your arms, you begin to teach them.  President  Spencer W. Kimball.
Develop mission-mindedness in children. In recent years nearly every time I see a little boy, I say, "You will make a great missionary, won't you?" You plant into his mind a seed. It is just like plants and other vegetation. It grows and grows, and if a father and a mother talk to their little boys, particularly, and their little girls, about going on a mission-when they are infants, almost-that little seed will grow and grow and they won't need to say anything about missionaries when they get a little older. The boys plan it. - Spencer W. Kimball
