Are You Alive?

Are You Alive?

By: Megan We are all living, but are we all alive? Now some will be thinking, “Megan, of course we are alive. We couldn’t be reading this if we weren’t.” Yes, that is true. If you are reading this, you are living. But I ask again, are you alive? By now you’re probably wondering what I mean by this, so allow me to tell you. Do you go to bed every single night knowing that you were alive that day? Or, do you just sit there and realize you’ve done the same thing…Read more …
You’ve Got This!

You’ve Got This!

By Megan/Image Credit: staystronghopeiscoming.tumblr.com We’ve all had times in our lives where we feel completely helpless.  Where we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders.  We often get discouraged and feel like giving up.  Failure seems to ride us like a horse, bringing disappointment along for the journey.  You feel as if everything is going wrong and the universe and God hates you. None of that is true.  Life hasn’t given up on you. Hope hasn’t given up on you. And God certainly has not given up on you. You…Read more …
What’s Your Part?

What’s Your Part?

By Rachel/ Image credit: cbmusic.com One of the ways I am able to invite the Christmas Spirit into my life is through music. I love the traditional Christmas songs that remind us of the Savior and His purpose on earth. However, there is one not-so-traditional Christmas song I feel perfectly explains our part in Christmas.

But you will find that there is a…Read more …

The Power of Positivity

By Megan A few months ago I really began to notice how negative our world is.  I watched as people were being put down and made fun for who they were.  It wasn’t just on social media, either.  I realized that it happened physically, too.  I watched as the words were taken personally, and how much they hurt.  I wanted to do something about it, so I did. [Tweet "Social media could use a little positivity."] I came up with this idea to share positive quotes on Facebook as often as I could. …Read more …
Choosing Happiness

Choosing Happiness

By Karli One of my best friends has chosen to serve a two-year LDS mission.  Recently, he spoke in church. He talked all out choosing to be happy and how we could always be happy. His topic really stuck out to me because I realized how true it was. We choose every day whether or not we are going to be happy. He said, “Every day may not be a good day but there is good in every day.” As I thought about this I realized that even on my worst of days there is…Read more …
Finding Your Path

Finding Your Path

By Collin One of my favorite springtime sights is that of newly hatched ducklings.  I love watching the tiny, fuzzy things waddle around, exploring the world under the guidance of their watchful mother; it’s adorable. However, a few springs ago, I had an experience with ducklings that I will never forget.  In a field near my home, a few of my siblings and I had observed (from a distance) a mother duck who was followed closely by five small ducklings.  We watched them for a few minutes before leaving to resume our activities. …Read more …
