Quote of the month...

"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings- week 43 --Prophets

President Thomas S. Monson
I feel so blessed to live in this day and age.  To have a living prophet on the earth.  To have General Conference to see and hear him speak the words our Heavenly Father and Jesus would have us hear. I feel so blessed to have a testimony and to be a member of His church.

We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet


Hymns, We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet, no. 19

1. We thank thee, O God, for a prophet
To guide us in these latter days.
We thank thee for sending the gospel
To lighten our minds with its rays.
We thank thee for every blessing
Bestowed by thy bounteous hand.
We feel it a pleasure to serve thee
And love to obey thy command.

2. When dark clouds of trouble hang o’er us
And threaten our peace to destroy,
There is hope smiling brightly before us,
And we know that deliv’rance is nigh.
We doubt not the Lord nor his goodness.
We’ve proved him in days that are past.
The wicked who fight against Zion
Will surely be smitten at last.

3. We’ll sing of his goodness and mercy.
We’ll praise him by day and by night,
Rejoice in his glorious gospel,
And bask in its life-giving light.
Thus on to eternal perfection
The honest and faithful will go,
While they who reject this glad message
Shall never such happiness know.

Text: William Fowler, 1830–1865

Music: Caroline Sheridan Norton, 1808–ca. 1877

We are so blessed to have a prophet lead and guide us in the last days. I love President Monson just as I loved President Hinckley.

I REALLY am so grateful for our Prophet. Especially since I grew up the first 17 yrs of my life without knowing about Latter-Day Prophets. What a difference it makes in your life!

Pres. Monson is an amazing man of God.

President Uchtdorf is AWESOME isn't he? I just listened to his conference talk and his RS gen mtg talk. He is SO in tuned to the women of the church!!
