Week 3: Bringing Sunshine
We are so excited to start our Study Group with this talk by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf! If you haven't read or listened to the talk yet, click here!
"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves" -James Barry
Serving someone else is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself. There is a joy found in service that can't be replicated or imitated in any way!
It's also one of the easiest ways we can be like our Savior. When I think of our Savior's ministry on this earth, I think of Him "going about and doing good," and that is what I want to emulate. Christ's day to day life was helping others, performing miracles, and serving. In our day to day life, we can also help others, perform our own miracles, and serve, serve, serve. When we serve, there is no way we can keep the happiness and light of others from touching our own hearts!
In his talk, President Uchtdorf says "In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance. Let us open our eyes and see the heavy hearts, notice the loneliness and despair; let us feel the silent prayers of others around us, and let us be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to answer those prayers."
This week, find ways to be His hands! Pray to know who to serve and God will bring people to your mind and give you ways to help them. You will feel confident, hopeful, and happier!
Thank you for being here, friends!
Describing the Atonement as an act of service is a monumental understatement, but it is the ultimate act of service, performed by our Savior. As you read about the Atonement during your "Come, Follow Me" studies this week, list the attributes of the Savior you can emulate in your margins!
This week we have a DIY for you and your book! We've seen many of our community add their own tabs to their books, using washi tape, and we loved this idea! We did it ourselves and took some pictures, so you can follow along! Click here for the full instructions!
