    Richard MonsonJuly 12, 2019

    Setting boundaries and recognizing our limits allows us the freedom and time to say “yes” to the things that matter most. Having the courage and wisdom to be truthful with yourself and your capacity will lead to greater peace and contentment, even if it feels a little uncomfortable at first.

    Perfection Is Our Potential, Not Our Present
    RM JenningsApril 26, 2019
    The ideas we sometimes have about perfection, and our need to achieve it, are very different from what Christ taught us about  perfection.
