Mormon Education

The Lord wants you to educate your mind and improve your skills and abilities. Education will help you to be an influence for good in the world. It will help you better provide for yourself, your loved ones, and those in need.

Be willing to work diligently and make sacrifices to obtain learning. Education is an investment that brings great rewards. You live in a competitive world where a good education opens the doors of opportunity that may otherwise be closed to you.

Maintain an enthusiasm for learning throughout your life. Find joy in continuing to learn about yourself, other people, and the world around you. Study the words of the Lord, and continue learning about your Heavenly Father’s plan (See Doctrine and Covenants 88:77-80). Make seminary an important part of your total education (For the Strength of Youth, 9).

I currently attend Brigham Young University-Idaho. My time at the university has brought joy, fulfillment, and success, all of which came after many challenges, struggles, and even failures. I have learned to value work, for it has been the means of my education. Not only did I work in order to afford an education, but I also worked in order to obtain an educated mind. This labor has been an education in and of itself. Life is a time for learning, whether inside the classroom or out. Motivated by Church leaders, parents, and my inner self I continue to love learning.

About Karen
Living out a great season of my life, thanks to Jesus Christ, and two wonderful daughters, a great life's work. Loving this opportunity to share faith online... I'm a single Mom, convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, second-gen Italian, from the East coast originally. Love the fine arts, dance, frozen yogurt, temples, scriptures, writing, jazz, helping others reach their potential, king salmon, ....and not in that order. God is good. I feel it deeply when people have a misconception of Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ, His Son, that lessens or cheapens Them and blinds one's ability to feel His presence or to trust in an ultimately good eternal end to life's circumstances.
