Who is Your Best Friend?

Who is Your Best Friend?

By: Ben T. Almost everyone has friends they are close to and with whom they share many experiences.  The ideal friend is loyal, trustworthy, happy, caring, and many other things.  You want people with these qualities in your life.  In order to have friends you need to be a good friend.   It’s a two way deal that requires your effort. Our earthly best friends are great, but nothing can compare to our Father in Heaven.  He would give you that last piece of candy, bring you a Slurpee when you’re feeling down, or lend you…Read more …

Is What You’re Doing Now Getting You Closer to Where You Want to Be Tomorrow? 

by Rachel I am your average junior in high school. Every day I am faced with a countless number of decisions that will ultimately determine the outcome of my future. Will these choices help me to serve a mission, get married in the temple, get as much education as possible, provide me with more opportunities in the future, etc. That's a scary thought for some kids. Elder Richard G. Scott gave us some great advice: "Think of the long view of life, not just what’s going to happen today or tomorrow. Don’t give up…Read more …
Three Things I Look for in Friends

Three Things I Look for in Friends

by Andy In my LDS seminary class (a religious class that I enroll in like a class at school), my teacher told us once that in our teenage years the two areas that influence us most are the media and our friends. That made me start to think a lot about who I was keeping company with and why I was surrounding myself with those people. Personally I thought that your family would influence you more than anything because those are the people that you share your home with, but as I thought…Read more …

Five Things Young Men Look for in Young Women

by Lincoln Many of you may have seen the last post by my twin sister, Rachel, titled Five Things Young Women Look for in Young Men.

So I texted a bunch of the girls in my contacts, and I asked the question on my Facebook page. Now, while this isn’t a scientific study, it seems to be a pretty good measuring stick. Of course, nobody is perfect. We all have our flaws,…Read more …
Faith In the Lord

Faith In the Lord

By Kaitlyn – “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 This is my all time favorite scripture. I love it because of the message it shares. It teaches about trust and faith in the Lord. If we have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, then he can direct our life in the way that will be most beneficial to us. Sometimes faith may be difficult but it will always be worth…Read more …
What’s So Special About Missionary Work?

What’s So Special About Missionary Work?

by Karli On April 26th 2014, one of my very best friends got baptized. It was such a neat experience for her but it didn’t only affect her, it affected me as well. When she came out of the water she was just glowing and I could tell that she just seemed happier. All of this wouldn’t have happened without missionary work. “We don’t expect [member missionaries] to be perfect, but they need to be anxious, willing and committed to serve.” (The Essential Role of Member Missionary Work by M. Russell Ballard in the…Read more …
