Love is All We Need

Welcome to the Neighborhood News

Love is the measure of our faith, the inspiration for our obedience, and the true altitude of our discipleship.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Love is a powerful emotion. Whether we're attempting to soothe an emotional child, take care of our bodies or corresponding with a birth mother who has made the ultimate sacrifice, we're showing love. Love comes in all forms and ways, but the most important show of love comes from our Heavenly Father.

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said in his October 2009 conference talk, The Love of God:
"Because love is the great commandment, it ought to be at the center of all and everything we do in our own family, in our Church callings, and in our livelihood. Love is the healing balm that repairs rifts in personal and family relationships. It is the bond that unites families, communities, and nations. Love is the power that initiates friendship, tolerance, civility, and respect. It is the source that overcomes divisiveness and hate. Love is the fire that warms our lives with unparalleled joy and divine hope. Love should be our walk and our talk.

"When we truly understand what it means to love as Jesus Christ loves us, the confusion clears and our priorities align. Our walk as disciples of Christ becomes more joyful. Our lives take on new meaning. Our relationship with our Heavenly Father becomes more profound. Obedience becomes a joy rather than a burden."
It's beautifully expressed, right? Do you have a way of showing love to yourself, others and Father in Heaven?
