Okay, I'm learning my lessons

Here's another quote from an article by Sister Hoole: "Expectations are high, not to make us feel unworthy, but to assure us that our Father in Heaven believes in us, that he loves us so much that he is preparing us to return and live with him. As we strive to reach this most lofty and glorious of all estates, we are beset with countless human frailties and challenging circumstances. These are not to discourage and deter us, but rather they are to teach us to trust in the Lord through faith in him, to rely on him through humility, and to perfect ourselves through repentance."

What an excellent quote. No matter what our circumstances may be, we have to keep in mind that this is what we're truly learning!!

I have got to know which Daryl Hoole book/articles you are reading . . . just this morning I was reading "House of Order." To be honest, she is the mother I never had, the mentor I always needed and my constant encouragement. All I can say is that her many many tips are fantastic and work :) for us really well. Have changed my life to be honest.
