creating

video
We watched this video (which you can download and keep for yourself) in Relief Society today and I thought it was beautiful. President Uchtdorf's talk in Women's Conference was one of my favorites and I really like how it was adapted into this video clip; I think it is a nice change from the cheesiness of the 80s that we are used to finding in our church media, though I'm sure that this too will be outdated soon enough.

Because it was the first Sunday of the month it was fast and testimony Sunday. I have to be honest in that I do not usually like these days because I am hungry and tired and end up feeling like everyone else is better at being good than I am. However, I had a little revelation today that testimony meeting is not a place where people stand up to say "I know these things and you should too." Instead it is a time for all of us little people, still trying to figure out what this life is about, tell each other, our friends and families, the things that we have learned so that we can help other people learn them too. I haven't gotten up to officially share my testimony in a long time, but I want to share some of the little things that I have learned today and will maybe help you in your learning as well. Here they are:
  • I cannot fix the past, I can only resolve to be better in the future.
  • If you have faith you show it through your actions.
  • Change is gradual and must be built over a long period of time—things build hastily don't last.
  • Teaching is a wonderful way that we can serve others.
  • "The things women can and should do very best are championed and taught without apology here."—Julie B. Beck
So there you go.

Holy cow Cassi! I just barely listened to this talk today too. It's one of my favorites.
