Lessons Learned

Welcome to the Neighborhood News

  Do you like shoes? What do your shoes say about you? Marie Ricks brings to us her article “Lessons from Pairs of Shoes.” She put in words memories of shoes she’s worn throughout her life, and what she’s learned from wearing them. It’s a really good article, and makes you think and ponder about what you have in your closet and wonder if you can learn something from what you own. Marie blogs at House of Order, and she’s also a published author.

 From the December, 2000, Ensign, we have an article written by elder Joseph B. Wirthlin, entitled “Lessons Learned in the Journey of Life.” He talks about the possessions that people think are important in life, and then he gives us advice that’s priceless. He says: “Some of the happiest people I know have none of the things the world insists are necessary for satisfaction and joy… I’d like to tell you five things that will bring you happiness, success, fulfillment, and the obtaining of an inheritance in the celestial kingdom.”


From By Common Consent, contributor Mark Brown wrote “The Prophet’s Shelf.” He mentions an experience learned from the prophet Brigham Young’s life, how the prophet decided he was going to deal with some situations. Sometimes we need to take a few steps back to see the whole picture, and maybe then we can understand what’s been represented.
