I have decided that I would love if I could change my major to Education Week!! I was able to attend some of the classes at BYU Education Week last week and loved it. For those of you who don't know, BYU has this every year and around 20,000 people of all ages gather on campus from all over and there are so many classes to choose from like gardening, food storage, music, parenting, marriage, and many doctrinal classes and more. I've been before and was so glad that I was able to attend again. (If you happen to be a single mother, did you know there are single mother grants available if you apply ahead of time?)
There was a series of classes at 11:00 (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) called Help, My Life's On Fire!--Finding Peace in an Unpeaceful World by Debbie Anselmi Bastian, Lori Hadley Hales, and Me’Chel Merrill Musgrave. I had never heard of them, but the topic was one I was interested in. The only problem was the same all the other hours. There are so many good classes that I had to choose one and miss the others. I missed the first two so I went to their Friday class entitled From Heartache to Peace...How Do I Get There? I hadn't noticed that after their names was this "(Heartbound)". They are a singing group, obviously named Heartbound.
"...Brothers and sisters, for the faithful, our finest hours are sometimes during or just following our darkest hours."
Elder Neal A. Maxwell, The Great Plan of the Eternal God, Ensign, May 1984
"To know who we are is important, but to know where we are in relationship to our earthly home and heavenly home is essential if we are to receive all the blessings our Father in Heaven has for those who love him and keep his commandments. Our eternal home is our ultimate destination. A proper yearning for home can prevent our getting lost in detours or paths that lead us away."
Marvin J. Ashton, A Yearning for Home Ensign, November 1992, 21-22
"True success in this life comes in consecrating our lives—that is, our time and choices—to God’s purposes (see John 17:1, 4; D&C 19:19). In so doing, we permit Him to raise us to our highest destiny."
D. Todd Christofferson, Reflections on a Consecrated Life, Ensign, November 2010
They are three lovely ladies who use their talents to uplift and bless others. Connect with them on their BLOG, WEB SITE, or Facebook. I found two of their songs on video and the final video is just a funny story in case you need a laugh today and a reason to make you really grateful that THAT didn't happen to you.
