Share the love!

Whenever someone tells me that they love me, it means a lot to me, so this past Valentine's Day, I decided that I wanted to let all of my friends know how much I love them. In order to do that, I came up with the idea to send each of them an email listing all of the things I love about them.

Small Act of Kindness

Recently, my family and I went to deliver brownies to our neighbors for Valentine's Day. I really enjoyed this activity of spreading love to everyone, even those that we hardly know, and I felt wonderful about it too. I knew that even though this was only a small act of kindness, it really helped not only our neighbors, but our family as well. I am glad that I had this opportunity to become a bit more Christ-like and look forward to having more opportunities like this in the future.

2014 Youth Theme

Every year the church picks a theme and a scripture for the youth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to focus on.  This year the scripture can be found in the Book of Mormon in the Book of Moroni 10:32. This scriptures counsels us to come unto Chirst and to be perfected in him.  This year I hope to use this scripture to help me to be more Christ-like; for example I can serve others, be more compassionate, be friendlier, be kinder, etc.  Here is a video that explains the theme for the youth more in-depth and it comes from the below link.

Christmas On the Piano!

I play the piano. With the Christmas season here, I've started practicing Christmas songs. I love every year when December rolls around and I get the opportunity to start playing Joy to the World, Silent Night, Away in a Manger, and others. I love the happiness and peace in each of these songs, which remind me of the true meaning of Christmas: Jesus Christ.

The Season of Spiritual Gift Giving!

On Sunday, I had the chance to teach the 12-13 year old youth group about spiritual gifts given to us from our Heavenly Father. For those who don't know or quite understand what spiritual gifts are, I think the lesson plan I was given best explains it. "Spiritual gifts are blessings or abilities given by the power of the Holy Ghost. As children of Heavenly Father, we all have spiritual gifts. God gives us these gifts so that we can serve others."

Erin's Thankful List!

I thought it would be appropriate to write a post parallel to what is being celebrated this week: Thanksgiving. A tradition in my family is that on Thanksgiving evening, we all hold hands and say ten things we are thankful for. I want to share my thankful list!
