Now is the day of choosing

“Straighten up and fly right”

As a pilot in the air force – never deliberately fly into a thunderstorm.  Wants to help us “fly right”.

You are responsible for choosing ever decision you make. **

He will let us know whether to fight, flee, or “go with the flow” of our present circumstances through prayer.  Will we let ourselves be led?  Will we follow His prophets?  Put your trust in His Spirit.

You are rich if you can live happily within your means.

(talks about education costing more than can repay)

Education will strengthen you against ignorance and error.  In knowledge is power.

When you date, get to know everything about each other.  Do you feel the same about the commandments, the temple, serving in the church, responding to success and failure?  Do they tear others down, or build them up?

Don’t date through your 20’s just to have a good time.

Your responsibility now is to become the type of person you want to marry.

Seek not to counsel the Lord, but to take counsel from His hand.

Didn’t raise my children on money; I raised them on Faith.

Serve in the church, follow the example of the Savior who went about doing good.

Regarding peers/friends – If you want more than you have, reach up – not across.

What areas of my life do i want to strengthen, so I can strengthen others.
