A Missionary Thought

My youngest son is coming home from his mission in less than two months and this thought reminds me of him and all of those dear souls who serve as missionaries.

It takes no special effort or ability to criticize and condemn error. Any limited mind can do that, and enjoy the boost it gives the ego. But it takes much discipline and self-denial to confront error with a calm resolve, with personal godliness, and with a blameless and constructive and upbuilding presentation of the Truth in its simplicity and beauty.


  1. Wow.

    "Sushing" him in primary seems about a million years ago. :)

    Very true sentiment you shared.

  2. Good one, Mom. It's true. Like Nata said: "Then I realized that I needed to grow up."

  3. Nice quote. On a side note...I just purchased your book and can't seem to put it down. Thank you for the insights you have shared. I totally love the book.
