The family is the greatest treasure of any country. Let us all work to protect and strengthen this, the cornerstone of society.
– Pope Francis –
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.
– Billy, age 4 –
The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
– Brian Tracy –
Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.
– James E. Faust –
Above all, constantly echo God’s intense love for one another, for love serves a canopy over a multitude of imperfections.
You have received grace gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many-colored tapestry of God’s grace.
– 1 Peter 4:8 –
Faith is having a good opinion of Destiny. That your Creator is good. That Destiny does not take, but gives. That Heaven’s good opinion of you never changes.
If loyalty is, and always has been, perceived as obsolete, why do we continue to praise it? Because loyalty is essential to the most basic things that make life livable. Without loyalty there can be no love. Without loyalty there can be no family. Without loyalty there can be no friendship. Without loyalty there can be no commitment to community or country. And without those things, there can be no society.

Inner peace is the result of a right perspective of Heaven. It comes when you know and believe that all of Eternity is for you, that your Creator is persistently pleased with you, that Destiny has a vested interest in your good success.
Inner peace is understanding that you are significant to Eternity, that Heaven knows your name, and your Creator has purposed that you live a long, good, satisfying life.
You matter to Destiny.
Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.
– Mother Theresa –
Authenticity starts when you set the intention to be genuine. Then, there must be an awareness of what that looks and feels like, and a willingness to act in accordance with your genuine nature even when it feels vulnerable.
When you live with this kind of self-awareness, decisions are easier because you are free to choose things that move you closer to your values. You are able to stand in the presence of your imperfections, because you can accept your humanity. You can also embrace your talents and abilities.
Authenticity may also require you to make unpopular decisions or to acknowledge aspects of yourself that you’d rather hide away, but in the end it allows you to live a more open, honest, and engaged life.
