Desktop Words

These are quotes that I typed onto sticky notes on my computer desktop at various times in the last three years...most are from my time at BYU-Idaho. My desktop is a disaster as a result, so I thought I'd put them somewhere out of the way where I could find them if I needed to. Look for the ones that stand out to you as you read!

“We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.” ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Matthew 10:16: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." We do not need to be aggressive to stand up against the lies of the world, but we do need to be wise and cautious to avoid being deceived.

New & Everlasting Covenant: The Gospel of Jesus Christ
~The Temple is a place for making/renewing covenants
~Our covenants are a blessing, not a burden.
