But back to Isaac and Rebekah.Here's a 3 minute cartoon about Eliezer, the servant of Abraham, finding Rebekah for Isaac to marry
Here are quotes from my study of General Conference that reflect why I loved studying Isaac and Rebekah's lives.
"Decisions determine destiny . . . a pivotal spiritual attribute - Self Mastery . . . the strength to place reason over appetite." Elder Nelson
"Covenant keeping strengthens, empowers, and protects. Keeping covenants is essential for true happiness. Keeping our covenants demonstrates our love for the Savior and our Heavenly Father." Sister Linda Burton
"Priesthood ordinances and covenants . . . arm sons and daughters of God with power, God's power." Sister Carol Stephens
"The key to spiritual protection is reading the scriptures." Elder Packer
Elder Eyring - On a notecard on my GenConf board after studying his talk. "One overarching commandment helps us meet challenges and leads to the heart of a happy family life: Love God with all thy soul and mind. Love thy neighbor as thyself." Matthew 22:35-40
Ryan and I are traversing the learning curves of new church responsibilities. Bumpy rides for sure, but it's fun to be growing and learning from our experiences together!
