I had the wonderful opportunity to attend BYU Women's Conference. In a breakout session Kara Murri said quoted President Nelson as saying "The Lord likes effort." I can't get the quote out of my head. Truth be told, I just want things to come easy. I want answers to come like a text message, but that is not how the Lord works. I need to prove to him I am willing and ready to receive his guidance in my life. It takes effort.
Everyone loved these favors made with Rolo's. I just cut circles out of gold scrapbook paper with my paper punch, glued on the rolo and I think the thing that made them extra cute were the Wilton Shamrock sprinkles. Glad I found the inspiration for the hats here: https://todayscreativelife.com/rolo-leprechaun-hats/
I was lucky enough to borrow these vases that had been converted to Gold. and just used the balloon weights from Dollar tree to stick down in the vases. Simple, but colorful.
I love this quote from Elder Pingree Jr.'s talk "I Have a Work for Thee." Can you believe it? Conference is tomorrow! So excited to hear from our newly called Prophet President Nelson and all our other leaders who will speak!
This week I had a circumstance that made me feel amazed at God's divine design for each of us. I really love Elder Rasband's talk "By Divine Design" where this quote comes from. I know his hand is in our lives.
