The simple things of the gospel

On Sunday Elder Ballard spoke at the CES fireside. I really enjoyed his talk about remember the simplicity of the gospel. To enjoy the plainness of the gospel. As I reflected after wards I thought of how because of the simple and small things of the gospel that it provides such a boost. It gets the fire within burning bright. I know it is true.

Words of Wisdom

The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
