Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah 8-16-09

Is the importance and elegance of womanhood at times lost under the fluff that the world sells them on. Excessive jewelry, makeup, fashions, and frills rather than substance?

“Sisters of the society, shall there be strife among you? I will not have it. You must repent, and get the love of God. Away with self-righteousness." (History of the Church, 5:24–25; paragraph divisions altered; from a discourse given by Joseph Smith on June 9, 1842, in Nauvoo, Illinois; reported by Eliza R. Snow.)

Speak not that which ought not be true.

Don't complain. Half the people don't care and the other half are glad it is happening to you.

A closed mouth gathers no feet

"Those saints who neglect it in behalf of their deceased relatives, do it at the peril of their own salvation." (History of the Church, 4:231)

Check our spiritual dipsticks to make sure our engines don't burn out due to lack of the stuff that keeps them lubricated.

Is there sufficient evidence to convict you of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ?

Prayers for Those We Serve
"Do those we serve hear us pray for them with faith and sincerity? If those we love and serve have not heard and felt the influence of our earnest prayers in their behalf, then the time to repent is now. As we emulate the example of the Savior, our prayers truly will become more meaningful." (Elder David A. Bednar, "Pray Always," Ensign, November 2008, 44.)
