“There is meaning and purpose in our earthly challenges. … Each of us must go through certain experiences to become more like our Savior. In the school of mortality, the tutor is often pain and tribulation, but the lessons are meant to refine and bless us and strengthen us, not to destroy us.” From Elder Hales’ http://pinterest.com/pin/24066179230743960 April 2003 http://facebook.com/223271487682878 message…
Finland's Maternity Box. I first heard about these a few years ago. Infant mortality rates drastically improved after starting this tradition in 1938. Super awesome idea. All you have to do is show that you have received some form of prenatal care. Bonus all around.
"There seems to be something inside of us that resists endings. Why is this? Because we are made of the stuff of eternity. We are eternal beings... Endings are not our destiny... Endings here in mortality are not endings at all. They are merely interruptions—temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful... In His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings." "Grateful in Any Circumstances," by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, GC, Apr. 2014
