 “You become what you believe.  What you believe is true for you?  What do you believe is possible for you?  If you can see it and believe it, it is a lot easier to achieve it.” -Oprah Life Class #3

 “The energy of God” speaks to us through the still small voice or in my religion we call it the Holy Ghost.  Each of us, no matter what religion we are, have the gift of the Holy Ghost.  The Holy Ghost speaks to us in the still moments of our life.  It is not a loud voice, but one that whispers to our very souls and guides us through our lives if we listen.

 “Whatever I would be doing I would find a way to be really good at it and excel at it.  That is what I believed about myself.   If that is what you believe you were born to do, you do it.  You find a way to allow the truth of yourself to express its self.  Because that is what we are all looking for.  We are all looking for the highest fullest expression of ourselves as human beings.  Unless you are doing that, unless you are finding a way for what you believe to be true about yourself, to express and manifest itself in the world, you are not living your fullest life.”-Oprah Life Class #3

What is your heart calling?  What is God whispering to you?  If you have the faith of a mustard seed all things are possible.  Go ahead and buy yourself a bottle of mustard seeds and see how small they are. 

One night I had given all that I could for the day and was a balling pile of mush.  My husband scooped me up in those big arms of his, comforted me and put me to bed.  The next morning on my bathroom was a piece of paper stuck to the mirror that said this, “Your future is as bright as your faith.”-Thomas S. Monson
I believe this with all my heart.  Whatever vision you have for your life or trial you are going through have faith that you can achieve the dream you have been dreaming for yourself or conquer a situation in your life.

These cookies will be perfect for the month of Thanksgiving.  Happy Sunday friends!!!!

  1. If you believe in the Holy Ghost, do you believe in Christ? May I encourage you to embrace our Savior, and don't lump Him in with everyone else? Be strong and courageous in your faith.

    Thank you for being bold enough to blog, and give yourself to the public. Please don't take this as a negative posting. I am glad you were here, and your recipe is here, and I am going to try your cookies today, adapted for whole foods with coconut oil, and whole wheat. I am sure they are terrific!

    I understand your love for Ellen, Oprah, and quotes. But believe what you believe, and don't be afraid to claim it, and delve into it. Christ is there to seek a relationship with us! People will respond stronger to truth then to adaptations of truth.
