    It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives,
    who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner".
    President Gordon B. Hinckley. [“Our Fading Civility,” Brigham Young University inauguration and spring commencement exercises, 25 April 1996, 15]
    "We are becoming the world experts in
    meeting, thinking, planning, and organizing
    about working the work,
    but we need to do it.
    We need to work."
    F. David Stanley “The Principle of Work” April 1993
     “Let us realize that the privilege to work is a gift,
    that power to work is a blessing,
    that love of work is success”
    President David O. McKay. (Pathways to Happiness [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1957], 381).

This is a great podcast

I just listened to this weeks episode and I loved it. I had an emotional moment when I reminded myself that I am a powerful son of God. I have given up some of my power to addiction and it was super helpful to remind myself that I do have inherent power as a son of God.
