Scripture Sunday - Sister Mayle's favorites

"For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fir to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father." ~ Mosiah 3:19

"O, my beloved brethren, remember the awfulness in transgressing against that Holy God, and also the awfulness of yielding to the enticings of that cunning one.  Remember, to be carnally-minded is death, and to be spiritually-minded is life eternal.
O, my beloved brethren, give ear to my words.  Remember the greatness of the Holy One of Israel.  Do not say that I have spoken hard things against you; for if ye do, ye will revile against the truth; for I have spoken the words of your Maker.  I know that the words of truth are hard against all uncleanness; but the righteous fear them not, for they love the truth and are not shaken." ~ 2 Nephi 9:39-40

Sister Mayle completed her mission last week.  She is now home spending time with her family and getting ready to go back to college.  It has been so much fun getting to know Sister Mayle and we miss her tremendously.  Sister Mayle will always have a special place in our hearts as well as in our family.
