Our new mission office motto

Elder Pearson gave a wonderful talk about faith in Christ in April General Conference. In it he mentioned 6 D's to avoid. In case you've forgotten, they were Doubt, Discouragement, Distraction, lack of Diligence, Disappointment and Disobedience. They are all negative words and we decided to come up with 6 positive (opposite) words. We tried to think of words that all began with the same letter, but we couldn't come up with that.

Here's what we came up with: Faith, Focus, Hope, Diligence, Courage and Obedience. We put it together to make up our motto: "Faithfully focus on hope with diligence, courage and obedience." Sister Gubler, with her creative talents, made up little cards for each of us. Mine is posted on the wall above the picture of my grandchildren--two great things to focus on.
