Happy Valentine's Day

Here's another little Valentines Print I designed. Sweet and simple. I think this is the one I'll print up and frame. It matches our living room quite nicely!

While at BYU I studied Marriage Family and Human Development. So many times I felt strong impressions that this major was MOST important for me and my family. While sometimes I wish I had graduated with a more marketable degree, I have never questioned the value of the education I recieved. I believe in family. I believe Satan is determined to destroy our families. I believe in hope for our families through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe the atonement can heal our homes and families. Here are a few of my favorite thoughts on love and marriage... I would love if you took a moment today and watched each of these little messages. They are all so beautiful and inspiring.

Lastly, for those still waiting for the opprotunity of marriage and companionship, a video from my favorite talk by Elder Holland, "Good Things to Come," as a beautiful reminder that blessings await you. (also, a very hopeful message to married couples too.)

Happy Valentines Day!

I think I love this Valentine even more than the first one you put up. So cute!

I also love the message and videos you've attached to this. How perfect that we really stop and think about love, marriage and family on a day that is dedicated to (at least commercially so) love?!

I attended the Church's Worldwide Training this past weekend and was both a little surprised, impressed and grateful at the intense focus on family. It was a wonderful reminder to me of the wonderful blessing I have in my family. Even though I'm miles away, I still feel close to you all (all of y'all).

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Your comments are profound and beautiful as always Lynley! I'm reminded of President Hunter's pithy and powerful little phrase, "Whatever Jesus lays his hands upon lives. If Jesus lays his hands upon a marriage, it lives. If he is allowed to lay his hands on the family, it lives" (Howard W. Hunter, Conference Report, October 1979, 93). Sometimes we don't give Him enough credit. We unwittingly limit His power and the depth and breadth of His atonement because we somehow think that we are the exception. In reality, the only ones who are outside of the reach of His power are those who refuse to let Him into their lives, who refuse to be transformed by His love. Thanks for sharing!
