hope, again

my sunday best: dress two was purchased at the mesa d.i. for $4.00 i ripped out the shoulder pads, added a different belt and voilà! little red dress.

"wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God."
-ether 12:4

i read this last week and loved it. the scriptures, lessons and talks about this seem to be jumping out at me lately. i guess that's what i need the most right now (well, actually what we all need, all the time) faith and hope. it's easy to get discouraged and scared about the world and about our lives, i have to remember that 'fear and faith cannot reside in the same heart.' thanks, president monson.

i hope for a better world.

We could all learn a lesson or two about that scripture. It's one of my faves too.

I admire your ability to find cute clothes at thrift stores (or to be creative enough to make them cute after you buy them). I need to learn how.

Fer reels! Well said!
Love your sense of style. I can't pull of that level of sophistication and cuteness. I'm meant to buy t-shirts from Target and always look a mess. :)
And your Spring break sounded fabulous! I want to be your sister!
