News from Headquarters

Today we had an announcement from Salt Lake about using our finances wisely. They pointed out that we shouldn't put all of our eggs in one basket (that would be the boiled-down version). Interesting that my mom said there's been a LOT of problems with scams in which members of the church lose their lives savings.
Sad that church members would do this to each others.
Sad anyone would do that.
I am so thankful for the guidance that the church provides. I mean, not placing all your eggs in one basket, not going into debt -- those are huge concepts, and yet they're simple ones. Ones that if you live by you can avoid a world of hurt.
God has always said it's the small things that you do that will bring you eternal happiness. Sometimes I think it's the big things I do -- life changing moments that I might have a part in, but I am slowly realizing that it's not.
The little things, the choices we make, I think that's where the "big deal" lies.
P.S. Did anyone get the announcement in church that those who were born during President Hinckley's administration were not generals in the war in heaven? I was hoping we'd hear about that from the bishop, but this advice was much more usable. :)

  1. We missed Sac Meeting today. Hubby got called into work 1/2 hour before we needed to leave for Church. But we made it to the other two hours. Found out we got a new RS presidency. YIPPPEE! We needed a change...What is this about generals in the war in heaven? I missed that. That's what we get for not making it to Sac Mtg. I do agree with not putting all your eggs in one basket though. That's what the gift of discernment is for..isn't it?

  2. I told you my parents got the generals in the war in heaven letter.

    We had stake conference yesterday, so I'll have to watch out for that financial letter.

  3. I probably don't even need to let you know that that was me. But it was. :)

  4. The bishop read the generals letter in PEC and gave the instruction to correct anyone who used the quote- but said he wouldn't be reading the letter in Sac. meeting- they weren't instructed to.
    I agree, the financial advice is far more usable. :)

  5. There are no easy answers to anything...or quick fixes...I think this is one way people get into all kinds of trouble...

    Everything worthwhile takes time.
