Harvest Flowers & Paint the Life

A little over a month ago I posted about how I was finding music to be so powerful in my life in helping me to create the life that I want to live. In that post, I mentioned how I am doing a little personal project to help myself in developing attention and therein, feel...

Secret Garden Key

A few weeks ago I read a quote that someone shared from the Music book in the Mother’s Learning Library about concentration.  It really stood out to me.  I wrote about it here.   Then a few days later, in looking for an entirely different quote in the Catch the Vision book, I stumbled across another...

Empower Others to Get Power of Their Own

“In business settings, power has been defined as the resources available to Person A to influence Person B. Influence is a perfectly good thing to strive for. In fact, one way to think about priesthood authority and power is righteous influence in others’ lives (see D&C 121:41). But there are also important differences between what...

Sharing Produces Evidence for Later

This morning I read Joseph Smith’s testimony of receiving the gold plates. What I thought was interesting was what Moroni told Joseph during the 4th visitation (after visiting him 3 times in the middle of the night a few hours before this). During this last visit, he commanded Joseph to go to his father and...
