Good lessons, good people and good personal study!

Email from July 24th

We taught faith this week, and our member mentioned that sometimes we think following the law is hard but that not following the law is even harder :P haha

One thing I've really noticed lately is how different all of Gods children are. We all learn differently but God works with the ways that we learn to help us the most! It's so cool!

Quote of the week: "your actions are a reflection of your inner conversion" 
So to go with that quote I was reading in the Book of Mormon this week from Abinadi and he mentioned that wicked King Noah and his priests hadn't "applied (their) hearts to understanding". Therefore their actions didn't show it in the slightest. In other words they weren't converted. Then I read a talk from last general conference that talked about getting it from our heads to our hearts in order to achieve true conversion. Then she mentioned some ways to true conversion through searching the scriptures, earnest prayer, service, temple attendance, and faithful fulfillment of responsibilities. (Do I Believe? Bonnie Oscarson) Then I read a scripture about the judgement day  "For behold, in my name are they called; and if they know me they shall come forth, and shall have place eternally at my right hand. 25 And it shall come to pass that when the second trump shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me. 26 And then shall they know that am the Lord their God, that am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed. 27 And then will confess unto them that never knew them; and they shall depart into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels." (Mosiah 26) and as I was thinking about that scripture there will only be two kind of people at that last day, those who were converted in their hearts and really came to know their Savior and those who didn't. So that's why conversion and daily scripture study and prayer and temple attendance, repentance and all those primary answers are soo important but the most important part I think is the sincerity behind it too. Anyways that's pretty much a smash up of my thoughts and personal study this week. (: .

OH AND I LOVE MONGOLIAN! I probably would have Never thought i would have said that. Don't get me wrong its still hard but i still love it! (:
