I’ve been thinking about my example a lot lately. I am a mother. I’m a friend, neighbor, young woman’s leader. I’m a daughter, sister, and wife. There are a lot of people I come in contact with, and I wonder, what kind of impression am I leaving them with.
I don’t always know what kind of example I am, but I know what I want to be. I want to be uplifting and enlightening. I’ve known a few people whose love and joy seemed to spread to everyone they came in contact with. I want to be like that!
I love this message from President Monson. To be a light we must
- Gain a personal testimony – Pretty obvious.
- Become a Beacon of Righteousness – through obedience
- Remember who you are – I am a child of God!
- Seek God’s Assistance – I think that Heavenly Father wants me to be the type of person that is joyful and uplifting. He will help me to pursue this desire and ability.
I love the inspiration and words of the prophets. They always help me at just the right moment in just the right way. What are some things that the prophets or apostles have taught recently that inspire you?
