Joy and Spiritual Survival - President Russell M Nelson

This is such a great talk! Who doesn’t want to find more happiness? We all do! This Sunday, we will come together and study to find just how we can do that!

As conflicts and corruption become “increasingly commonplace in these latter days, what can help us? What can help us with our personal struggles and with the rigorous challenge of living in these latter days?”

We learn from Lehi a principle revealed by the Lord, “Men are that they might have joy.”!

“Saints can be happy under every circumstance. We can feel joy even while having a bad day, a bad week, or even a bad year!”

“The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.”

The Savior’s joy is constant, “assuring us that ‘our afflictions be but a small moment’ and be consecrated to our gain.”

How have you found joy during difficult times and trials in your life? Please ponder this and come with ideas to help others find joy during hard times.

Dear Sisters,

Please review the article titled "Rescuing the Lost" by Roy Bean from the January 2017 Ensign. The title explains the content of the article. I really appreciated studying the 15th chapter of Luke. In this one chapter, three well known parables are given to us. Each helps us better know how to reach out to those that are lost, inactive and struggling to live our gospel.

As our leaders have predicted many are lost from our fold, in this day and time. I speak for all of us when I say "We love them and want them back with us" Please say a prayer on Sunday that we may share with each other our thoughts and feelings about bringing our brothers and sisters back to our fold.

With love,
Shirlee Chaillet
