Words for You to Ponder Today


  • "To feel the warmth of a tender hug from an eternal companion or to see the sincerity in the eyes of another person as testimony is shared . . . could be sacrificed for a high-fidelity fantasy that has no lasting value. If you and I are not vigilant, we can become 'past feeling,' as did Laman and Lemuel long ago."

  • "Precious moments of opportunity to interact and converse with our children dissolve when we are occupied with distractions. Why not choose a time each day to disconnect from technology and reconnect with each other? Simply turn everything off. When you do this, your home may seem quiet at first; you may even feel at a loss as to what to do or say. Then, as you give full attention to your children, a conversation will begin, and you can enjoy listening to each other."
