words are powerful. word.

this semester i am taking a living prophets class...
it is the greatest class that i have EVER taken...
we have been studying our dear prophet for the past two weeks...
goodness sakes i cry every class because the spirit is so strong...
these quotes are ones that he has used in talks and i have now adopted them as motivation in my life...

"stick to the task till it sticks to you;
beginners are many, but enders are few.
honor, power place and praise
will come, in time, to the one who stays.

stick to the task till it sticks to you;
bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too;
for out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
will come life's victories, after awhile."
-author unknown

"it is easy to be pleasant,
when life flows by like a song,
but the man worth while is one who will smile,
when everything goes dead wrong.
for the test of the heart is trouble,
and it always comes with the years, 
and the smile that is worth the praises of earth
is the smile that shines through tears."

these are definitely quotes that i will be memorizing and taking with me wherever life takes me!
i am so grateful for a inspired prophet of the lord who finds so many ways to teach us to improve our life and continue pressing forward to the potential the Lord knows we have!
