Quote Card 66 FREEBIE (Endings)

This weekend was the 184th Annual General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and, as always, there were amazing messages. I don't know how I'll create quote cards for all of them. This one was important to me. 'Endings are not our destiny' as said by Pres. Uchtdorf.You can listen to, watch, or read the General Conference messages here.

To create these quote cards I used the following resources:

Kit: Tea For Two by Just So Scrappy

I didn't use a template. I scrap-lifted this from a layout in my 'Layout Inspiration' collection (If you know of the layout used, or the person who originally scrapped this, I would be happy to include that information here).

Fonts: Effloresce and Screengem.

Quote Card 66 (Give Me Experience But not Grief) FREEBIE

Today's Sunday School lesson came from the Old Testament Lesson 8: Living Righteously in a Wicked World. I also read the Seminary Lesson that coordinates with this section of the Old Testament and today's Quote Card 66 comes from there, Genesis 18-23.  There are many lessons to be learned within these pages. Also, this is one of those chapters where reading the Joseph Smith Translation is important (What is the JST?). For instance, you learn that Lot did not offer up his daughters to the men who came to the door, but rather pleaded that both the men and his daughters would be spared (see JST Genesis 19:9-15). You can read more about Abraham here in the Pearl of Great Price. I hope you enjoy the quote I chose to share.

To create these quote cards I used the following resources:
Kit: Ann and Andy Kit by Just So Scrappy
Template: Kay Miller Designs Pieces of My Heart Template 3
Fonts: London Between

Quote Cards 64 and 65 (Loved Ones Who Go Astray) FREEBIE

Today's quote cards come from the Sunday School lesson that discussed the contrast between the stories of Cain and Abel and Enoch, Lesson 5: "If Thou Doest Well, Thou Shalt Be Accepted". This lesson reminded me of many of the challenges we face in today's world. We are our brother's keeper, but there is a limit to what we can accomplish. Although our intentions our to prevent our loved ones, and the world in general, from jumping off the spiritual cliff, we must also remember they have their free agency. Instead of condemning one another for each others weaknesses, we should remember to love. Our reaction to another unrighteous decisions can be as condemning to ourselves and our spiritual growth as the sin we are condemning, when we are not careful.

Today's quote came from the above lesson, at the very end, by Richard G. Scott, who gave excellent advise for how to handle these situations.

Quote Card 63 (The Fall) FREEBIE

I stayed home today still recovering from being sick for the past four days. I'm feeling much better; I just want to make sure I am still going to be better tomorrow when I return to work. It hurts the pocketbook to miss two days of work!

So, while I am lazy at home, I decided to make a quote card for today's Sunday School lesson. I read it through during the week. Then, I also read the related chapter in the Seminary manual as well as another book I have that discusses the fall of Adam and Eve. This is one of my favorite stories in the scriptures and it's one of the most important. It is the story of our first parents and their struggles in precipitating our life here on earth. This story is also one of the most misunderstood. Their story doesn't begin with the Garden of Eden and it doesn't fail with the fall. The fall was on purpose. It wasn't a sin; it was a transgression. As I was reading through all of my resources, the words that stuck with me the most during the rest of the week are the ones I concentrated on for this quote card. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Old Testament: Gospel Doctrine Teacher's Manual. Lesson 4: 'Because of My Transgression...'
Old Testament Seminary Student Manual Genesis 3: The Fall
Moses 5:11 which is part of the Pearl of Great Price. Learn more of the Pearl of Great Price here.

Quote Card 31 (When God Speaks) FREEBIE

I have so many cards made and I tend to make a few more each month, that I decided to share one during the middle of the week, too. Maybe I will catch up with myself!

I love this quote. It is so helpful to be reminded of how important it is to heed to our Heavenly Father's counsel. Sometimes, I can feel a bit distracted or confused, for lack of better words, by the choices available to me and wonder which one is the correct one. This quote reminds me that if there is a piece of counsel or commandment given by God on that very concept, I am assured that by choosing to following his direction that I will be making the right choice.

For this quote card I used the At The Market kit by Kimeric Kreations and the Chevi Template by Simple Girl Scraps.

Quote Cards 60 and 61 (Loving Our Savior) FREEBIE

I know I'm skipping ahead a bit in the quote card count because I made these two cards today from the Teachings of Presidents of the Church Joseph Fielding Smith lesson chapters 1 and 2, and I want to share them while they were still fresh in everyone's mind. I don't know if I'll make one for every lesson, but I felt compelled to do so today. I hope you enjoy them!
