Dear friends,

I had several requests for the information on the quote I used in the Green Room last Friday and Saturday nights.
Here it is:

    "For many, the call to be a Christian can seem demanding, even overwhelming. But we need not be afraid or feel inadequate. The Savior has promised that He will make us equal to His work. "Follow me " He said, "and I will make you fishers of men." As we follow Him, He blesses us with gifts, talents, and the strength to do His will, allowing us to go beyond our comfort zones and do things we've never before thought possible. This  may mean sharing the gospel with neighbors, rescuing those who are spiritually lost, serving a full-time mission, working in the temple, raising a child with special needs, loving the prodigal, serving an ailing companion, enduring misunderstandings, or suffering affliction. It means preparing ourselves to answer His call by saying, "I'll go where you want me to go; I'll say what you want me to say; I'll do what you want me to do; I'll be what you want me to be."

Robert D. Hales

Love you all for your examples to me!
