GM 2nd Ward Enriching Ideas August 2009
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Proverbs 31:10, 25-38
Virtuous living “at all times and in all things, and in all places” qualifies you for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. Determine to partake worthily of the sacrament each week and fill your life with virtuous activities that will bring spiritual power. As you do this, you will grow stronger in you ability to resist temptation, keep the commandments, and become more like Jesus Christ. –Virtue Pamphlet
As you strive to follow the teaching of our Savior we pray that you can find the peace that comes from living a virtuous life.
Love, Nina Biesinger, Lauri Lund, Summer Gordon and Heather Hansen
"In reviewing the Lord’s counsel to us on the importance of preparedness, I am impressed with the plainness of the message. The Savior made it clear that we cannot place sufficient oil in our preparedness lamps by simply avoiding evil. We must also be anxiously engaged in a positive program of preparation.”
Visiting Teaching Message- quote
“The Lord has blessed women with divine attributes of love, compassion, kindness, and charity. Through our monthly visits as visiting teachers, we have the power to bless each sister as we extend our arms of love and kindness and give the gifts of compassion and charity. No matter what our individual circumstances are, we all have the opportunity to edify and nurture others.” –Sister Silvia Allred, Gen. R.S. Presidency.
