as young women we are asked all the time in lessons we have about the qualities we want in a young man and we make lists. where do we draw the line when setting these standards? are there lines? is it settling for less when you don't get everything on the list? because a good friend of mine said she looked back at her list and none of it matched her husband and she is perfectly happy. help!

mormonproblems:

Yes, yes, yes! What your friend said. I think the line can be clearly defined to never lowering your standards for a relationship, but helping each other with personal problems, or troubles you can work through. Yes, abandon your lists, and keep an open mind. The man of your dreams may be completely unexpected, but still perferct for you :)

I’ve been thinking about this lately!

Please don’t ever EVER take your loved ones for granted…you never know when Heavenly Father will need them.

spiritualinspiration:

God is constantly trying to plant new seeds of victory on the inside of you. He’s trying to increase you. He’s trying to enlarge your vision. He wants to take you to new levels of victory. But before you see a harvest, the seed has to take root. You have to conceive it before you are going to receive it. In other words, before you’re ever going to be successful, you’ve got to see yourself successful. Before you’re ever going to have your dreams come to pass, you’ve got to look out through your eyes of faith and see them coming to pass. That’s how you allow the seed to take root.
Today, I encourage you to examine your thought life. What are you allowing to take root? Are God’s seeds of victory and life growing in your heart and mind, or are you nurturing seeds of defeat and despair? The good news is that you can change your thoughts right now, this very moment. Begin to dwell on God’s promises and His goodness. Let His good seeds take root in your mind and heart. It won’t be long before you’ll see that harvest of blessing come forth in every area of your life!

Please understand that having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and keeping His commandments are and always will be the defining test of mortality. Above all else, each of us must realize that when one is tone-deaf to the music of faith, he or she is out of tune with the Spirit.
