About

I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Feel free to leave a comment--I'd love to hear what you have to say! You can also reach me at teachmetowalk [at] hotmail [dot] com.

Where Men and Women Grow

"It is not on the pinnacle of success and ease where men and women grow most. It is often down in the valley of heartache and disappointment and reverses where men and women grow into strong characters."

-President Ezra Taft Benson, quoted by Elder Dallin H. Oaks in "Adversity"

This Way or That Way

"So you are the focus of two conflicting patterns trying to influence you in your life, trying to have you go this way or that way. You are the one who makes the decision...On one hand, you have inspiration from the Holy Ghost, and, on the other hand, you have what President Ezra Taft Benson called 'sinspiration' from the angels of the devil. They are with you all of the time."

-Elder Boyd K. Packer, "The Instrument of Your Mind and the Foundation of Your Character"

I know that it's not fall yet, but it's close enough, right? Right!

I don't know if I've ever linked to We Love to Illustrate before, but if not, I should have. I love it. Give 'em a visit--they have lots of free (and adorable) printables by children's illustrators. You're welcome.

All That Appears Wrong

[photo by Grant MacDonald via Compfight]
"Most of the heartache, pain, and suffering we would not choose today. But we did choose. We chose when we could see the complete plan. We chose when we had a clear vision of the Savior's rescue of us. And if our faith and understanding were as clear today as it was when we first made that choice, I believe we would choose again.

"Therefore, perhaps the challenge is to have the kind of faith during the hard times that we exercised when we first chose. The kind of faith that turns questioning and even anger into acknowledging the power, blessings, and hope that can come only from Him who is the source of all power, blessings, and hope. The kind of faith that brings the knowledge and assurances that all that we experience is part of the gospel plan and that for the righteous, all that appears wrong will eventually be made right. The peace and understanding to endure with dignity and clarity of purpose can be the sweet reward. This kind of faith can help us to see the good, even when life's path seems to be layered only with thorns, thistles, and craggy rocks."

-Bishop Richard C. Edgley, "For Thy Good"
