Scriptures, Lion King, and Christmas

Hi-ya!!! :)

So I've been trying to think about what to share on here today and I was drawn back a personal study that I am doing currently, and also a favouite quote from The Lion King movie.... haha :)

I have been studying the things that God has commanded us to remember in the Book of Mormon. The many promises and commandments that He has given us.
The Lion King quote is "Simba, Remember who you are."

There are a lot of things that we are suppose to remember in life, like our name, birthday, locker number and combination, phone number, favourite food (for password's a struggle) and the list can go on and on.
Elder Holland taught us about one of the most important things that we need to remember,

A graphic of the Holy Family at the first Christmas, combined with a quote by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: “First and forever there was just a little family. … That’s how Christmas began.”

With all the packages and wrappings, treats and cocoa, and traveling and cooking; it gets easy to let things slide. We say we will remember it, but how often is it just remembered on Christmas Eve right before sending the kids off to bed (even though we all know they don't actually sleep). 

There is so much more to remembering than a few crazy last minutes. 
We can only TRULY Remember the reason for the season, IF we work hard at it every single day. 

Check out for some ideas on how you can #LIGHTtheWORLD and Remember Him! :)
