Stake Priesthood Meeting
Home teaching companionships should not be one sided.
Make sure your home teaching families know that you love them.
Mark 4 - whereunto shall we compare the kingdom of God.
"My dear friends and fellow priesthood holders, if Jesus Christ were to sit down with us and ask for an accounting of our stewardship, I am not sure He would focus much on programs and statistics. What the Savior would want to know is the condition of our heart. He would want to know how we love and minister to those in our care, how we show our love to our spouse and family, and how we lighten their daily load. And the Savior would want to know how you and I grow closer to Him and to our Heavenly Father."- President Dieter F Uchtdorf, On Being Genuine, April 2015 General Conference)

First presidency message April 2015
“We will all face fear, experience ridicule, and meet opposition. Let us—all of us—have the courage to defy the consensus, the courage to stand for principle. Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval. Courage becomes a living and an attractive virtue when it is regarded not only as a willingness to die manfully but also as the determination to live decently. As we move forward, striving to live as we should, we will surely receive help from the Lord and can find comfort in His words.” (Thomas S. Monson, “Be Strong and of a Good Courage,” Ensign, May 2014, 69
Bear testimony. Use words when necessary.
Have courage not just to change the world, but to change ourselves.
