"Some days it is definitely work and stressful and requires alot of effort, but those are the greatest opportunities to grow and learn. I've learned the lesson of staying cheerful and optimistic, even when things aren't going exactly as planned." ~ Elder Blake Larsen, in a letter today for Mom. 5 July, 2011
"I hope you can focus on the good in life. Whenever you feel down, IMMEDIATELY count your blessings. Literally say them, count them! All troubles will seem small if you recognize why you have them & how you can use them to better yourself. This is what my mission has taught me so far."~ Elder Blake T. Larsen
