A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on confidence, failure, family, feeling, god, guidance, heart, needs, prayer, sorrow, and world

God knows the feelings in every human heart. He can soften sorrow and lead when there seems to be no light. Prayer can give guidance and confidence. It reminds us that no one need be alone in this world. If all else fails, remember, God and one other person can be a family.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on destruction, media, mercy, privacy, time, and world

King David was pleading for mercy and cried, ". . . their tongue a sharp sword." (see Psalms 57: 4 & 64:3) In the world today we are victims of many who use their tongues as sharp swords. The misuse of our tongues seems to add intrigue and destruction as the media and private persons indulge in this pastime called bashing. If we follow the Savior's teachings there is no time for the dastardly hobby of bashing instead of building.

With God's help, good cheer permits us to rise above the depressing present or difficult circumstances. It is a process of positive reassurance and reinforcement. It is sunshine when clouds block the light.
