My name is Lauren and I am a student at Brigham Young University - Idaho and I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be posting quotes, scriptures, mormon messages, the blessings in my daily life and much much more. This blog is a way for me to keep learning and to share with people what I know so that it sticks with me a little bit better.
" But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:" - 1 Peter 2:9

 

Seoul Korea Temple
Fun Facts:
December 14-15 1985 by Gordon B Hinckley making it the 37th operating temple. 
The first Korean member of the church joined while attending school in america. He introduced his his family to it when he returned to Korea and the church began to grow. 
The temple land was bought and the first building built on the sight was an institute building and it was the first institute building out side of North America. 
The original plan for the temple was a simple building, however it was enlarged and redesigned 3 times because the Korean saints gave up so much of their savings to build a temple. 
The closest temple before the building of the Seoul Korea temple was the Laie Hawaii temple and because of laws that kept couples leaving the country together made it very difficult for saints to travel.

Count Your Many Blessings - 8th Edition 

I am grateful for Patriarchal Blessings today. Mine has been a great tool in the last couple years of my life and I am so happy I have mine to look too. As I learn more about patriarchal blessings, the more I am amazed. I want to urge all the converts and investigators and even all the members who haven’t gotten theirs to start preparing for it… TODAY. Do not delay. Start praying about your questions, and write those down. Start striving to live the gospel even better then you already do. Lay aside the temptations of the world and focus on Him. 

The blessing will be your personalized guide to your spiritual life. When you get your blessing, the blessing only stays true if you live your life in accordance to His will and you want to make sure that you don’t go astray and potentially miss out on the rich blessings that are in store for you! I love each one of you and I know that great things lay ahead for us and our generation.  

So many things beat upon us in a lifetime that simply enduring may seem almost beyond us… But the test a loving God has set before us is not to see if we can endure difficulty. It is to see if we can endure it well. We pass the test by showing that we remembered Him and the commandments He gave us. And to endure well is to keep those commandments whatever the opposition, whatever the temptation, and whatever the tumult around us.

On that subject, here’s a video of him. Marshall McDonald, playing his arrangement of If You Could Hie to Kolob.

Favorite Hymn. And if anyone knows me it has inspired me to learn about Kolob. :] 

Live in such a way that people who know you but don’t know Christ will want to know Christ because they know you.

Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.

Jeffery R. Holland

I got lost today… and found Kolob. 

This is a mormon joke I think… lol

Count your many blessings - 7th edition

I skipped yesterday, but I am here today with something I am really truly grateful for. That is a four letter word - love. It filled my heart today, it filled my soul. I love love. I just love it. :]

This is my all time favorite temple Laie, Hawaii.
