Relief Society Woman's Broadcast

It was a wonderful evening watching the Woman's Broadcast Saturday evening. There were so many things said that touched my heart and opened my eyes to sacred truths. I always love hearing Sister Julie Beck and her inspiring messages and what a wonderful blessing to hear from our beloved Prophet Thomas S. Monson. You can review their talks here.

Sister Beck said this meeting is a gift, and as I have thought about this I realize how true that statement is. We are not asked to do anything that does not bless our lives eternally. The meetings that we attend strength us to do better, teach us ways to become better, why then is it so hard to cast of the things of the world (TV-Fun to do things-Reading a Novel, to name a few) and do the things of the Lord like attending our Relief Society Meetings, spending time getting to know and serving our neighbors and actually going to Sunday School Class rather than visiting in the hall. We need to take the time to look at our lives as a gift, this world we live in as a gift, our families, our jobs, all that we have are gifts from a loving Heavenly Father and the greatest gift of all our Lord and Savior and His great atonement. Thank you Sister Beck for opening up my eyes once again to the blessings that I have and enjoy each day of my life and giving me a greater desire to serve and love with a heart like his.
