Food for Thought

  • As we enter this month that shares with us the endurance that Jesus suffered on the cross so that our sins could be paid. Let us remember this quote and reflect on it with regularity.

The Joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and EVERYTHING to do with the focus of our lives

Russell M. Nelson
  • What is your focus? Is it on the job, family or maybe friends?
  • Try Focusing on Jesus and watch the changes
