What would Christ do if he were in my situation?More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We know that service is indispensable for bringing us close to the Savior and letting us feel his Spirit. In nothing do we resemble the Savior more than in serving others. So in nothing should we feel greater love and joy than in service.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When we set aside the burden of judgment, then our hands and hearts are free to serve others with joy. Such service is truly the way of the Christian.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you're doing the best you can, that's good enough.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When our burdens are grievous to be borne, when we face a world in which it seems that there is only struggle and no rest, I hope we can remember the immense strength of our sisterhood, the reservoirs that we have within us, and the unfailing wellspring of the Savior’s love for us, even in the midst of adversity.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our real calling to be a compassionate Christian came when we stepped out of the waters of baptism… We don’t need a bishop’s assignment to be kind. We don’t need to sign up to be thoughtful. We don’t need to be sustained by our wards to be sensitive.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Hooray for differences! Without them, there would be no harmony. In principles, great clarity. In practices, great charity.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only you know your circumstances, your energy level, the needs of your children, and the emotional demands of your other obligations. Be wise during intensive seasons of your life. Cherish your agency, and don’t give it away casually. Don’t compare yourself to others — nearly always this will make you despondent. Don’t accept somebody else’s interpretation of how you should be spending your time. Make the best decision you can and then evaluate it to see how it works.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be spiritually independent enough that your relationship with the Savior doesn't depend on your circumstances or on what other people say and do. Have the spiritual independence to be a Mormon--the best Mormon you can--in your own way. Not the bishop's way. Not the Relief Society president's way. Your way.More Chieko Okazaki [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
