If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn't Be Hard by Sheri Dew

In If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn't Be Hard by Sheri Dew she reminds us that life wasn't meant to be easy.

"While life is meant to test and challenge and strengthen us, if we are attempting to negotiate the twists and turns and ups and downs of mortality alone, we're doing it wrong."

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

"We don't really know what we believe in or care about until what we believe in or about is threatened, challenged or measured."

"It's not possible to come unto Christ with all of our hearts if our hearts are tied in knots with envy or anger or resentment or pride."

"But I feel at peace about one thing - that the Lord, at least, will judge me on the intent of my heart. Only he can see the whole of any picture, including what's in our hearts."

"Surely what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best evidence for what sort of a man he is." CS Lewis

"Keep every avenue of your heart clean and pure before Him." Brigham Young

"May we therefore devote all our days, all our energy to heeding the word of God and diligently seeking after Him and His son. For therein lies pure joy."
