If we see the commandments as a tool to "become" godly, then we'll concern ourselves less with the perfection of our actions and more with the perfection of our intent.

There is no one who serves in any leadership position in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (i.e. Mormons) who acts without absolute power. All leadership is checked by the presence of counselors and councils that must be unified before decisions can be made and put into action. Presidencies and councils are set up to invite revelation from God and sanction from the Holy Ghost. #thedoctrinelady #MormonBlogger #mormon #mormons #lds #ldswomen #truth #doctrine #godhead #christianity #order #jesus #god #holyghost

What's a #spiritual #ultimatum ? It's how you INVITE someone to act on their Agency. It's how you LET GO of micromanaging others' righteousness. It's how you stop being an ENABLER. #thedoctrinelady #mormonblogger #mormon #relationships #marriage #family #christian #ldsstruggles #jesus #god

#equality is such an issue today...when in our country we have more riches and privileges than ever before in history, and still far more than most ever will. I wonder if we truly understood God's equality if that would help us to focus on the blessings and wonderful similarities we share instead and find joy in what our differences allow us to accomplish in building up God's kingdom. #injustice #inequality #grace #differences #truth #doctrine #thedoctrinelady #mormonblogger #mormon #ldsblogger #unity #blessings #entitled

The less we know anyone, including God, the less we can trust them. We cannot enjoy the privilege of the association with God if we do not get to know Him by trying to be like Him. #ldswomen #ldsbeliefs #ldsstruggles #thedoctrinelady #mormonblogger #mormon

Having the #Spirit with you when you #teach is not the same as "teaching BY the Spirit." There is a difference. **********************

True love is wonderful, but it can also hurt. But even the hurt turns to true joy because it always leads us to truth and the ability to learn, grow, and find greater happiness than that which we originally sought. God is true love. He loves perfectly as our Father in Heaven. #thedoctrinelady #truetohim #loveofgod #love #truelove #toughlove #fatherhood #fathersday #thedoctrinelady #mormon #moralagency #mormonblogger #lds #ldsblogger #freewill

For me becoming charitably kind, and not just going through the motions, became possible as my motivation changed to focus on helping others through God's plan. I realized acts of kindness create opportunities for God to get in touch with people and bring them closer to Him. This perspective made the idea of kindness much more desirable to me. #mormonblogger #love #kindness #thedoctrinelady #charity #ldsstruggles #ldsbeliefs #truelove #scriptures

Teaching BY the Spirit is to provide the conditions in which the Holy Ghost can teach. We do this by creating opportunities for others to ponder, self-evaluate, visualize, recall and testify/witness of truths they already know, and to evaluate and deepen what they think they understand about a truth. It's presenting doctrines and letting individuals consider their own personal applications. If we are not doing these things we are not teaching BY the Spirit. #thedoctrinelady #lds #ldsblogger #mormon #mormonblogger #truetohim #teaching #truth #doctrine #holyspirit #holyghost

I began this blog differently and then God taught me so much writing it that it has forever changed me. I hope it will do the same for you.

Life makes so much more sense...all of it...if we see it through the lens of being refined and learning to #becomelikegod Any and all experiences in this life, whether we deserve them or not, can teach us godly characteristics and increase our love of God, truth, and right. The atonement of Jesus Christ has paid for and will eventually be "cashed in" to wipe away all tears, to heal all infirmity, to absolve all sin (for those who repent), to perfect those traits we exercised our will to gain, and to raise us from the dead. Thus, life is hard, unfair, a struggle, etc. but it will never be a loss if we use its experiences to learn of God and to become like Him. #celestial #jesuschrist #grace #thedoctrinelady #deification #theosis #mormon #moralagency #agency #freewill #mormonblogger #lds #ldsblogger #truth #truetohim #godsplan Book is by Andrew Skinner, To Become Like God

"The Son of God became man so that we might become God." I love the way this is worded. And a lot of people would be surprised to learn that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (#lds #mormon ) is not the only #christian #religion to believe our purpose on this earth is to become like God. Most Christian religions have this underlying doctrine in their past and it has been reinterpreted and softened because it was difficult to understand. Want more details? Read TO BECOME LIKE GOD by Andrew C. Skinner. #truetohim #ldsblogger #mormonblogger #godsplan #jesuschrist #truth #doctrine #thedoctrinelady

Often generalized gospel phrases catch on and remove #doctrine from our underlying beliefs and understanding of #godsplan . There's a big difference between just getting home to God's presence and #becoming like Him. God's plan is about us becoming as He is. That is critical doctrine that gives purpose to the largest sacrifices, the most unfair injustices, the hardest trials, and the need for the #atonement of #jesus #christ .

Has this ever happened to you? You're having one of those days when you bump into everything, drop everything, and everything seems to be against you. Then something bursts your last ounce of patience and instead of crying or falling apart you start laughing? Because for a moment you get an eternal glimpse of your day and realize that it's ok. That gift of laughter came from heaven! OR I love this scripture...it's so funny! God didn't have to leave it there when He inspired its translation (Alma 55:32).

Even when we repeatedly push Him away Heavenly Father NEVER GIVES UP ON US. He'll keep inviting, enticing, and guiding us back to Him till our last breath. Talk about long-suffering. 😀 #grace #doctrine #thedoctrinelady #fathersday #fatherhood #family #truth #mormon #moralagency #mormonblogger #lds #ldsblogger #truelove #charity

Life is hard. There is nothing easy about it. But knowing God knew how hard this life would be and yet He still invited me to jump into it anyway tells me He knows it's worth it...and that because of the atonement of Jesus Christ I can conquer it. #empathy #sympathy #godsplan #fatherhood #thedoctrinelady #fathersday #truth #godslove #lds #ldsblogger #mormon #mormonblogger #doctrine #grace #atonement #jesus

God is PERFECTLY sympathetic and empathetic. Not only does He understand our life, He has experienced it. All the more reason we can trust Him and His plan for us because "He's been there." He knows how hard this life is and He'll help us through because He's a PERFECT FATHER. #truetohim #thedoctrinelady #lds #ldsblogger #mormon #mormonblogger #truth #god #fathersday #fathersontime #fatherhood #godsplan #sympathy #empathy

#grace is available to us in degrees as we seek to follow #jesus Christ. The more we #become like Him the more His grace can sanctify us. But the core of the #gospel is our chance to become like #god, not just hang around in His presence. So for a fullness of grace we have to want more than just to be basically #good. We have to want to be #godly. When we come to the conclusion that #godliness is our goal, then the fullness of the gospel (and grace) at last has a chance to flow into our lives. It's like giving The Blacksmith the OK to turn up the heat as we turn our lives completely over to Him to be fully changed into a being that is like Him.

Over the course of my life, I have made the mistake of talking, acting, and dressing to get attention. I have dressed like a slob. I have acted and talked and dressed to get people to think I'm attractive, etc. Then, as my faith in Christ grew I began to see that what I said, did, and wore often conflicted with representing Him and testifying of Him and holding up His light. Does that mean I don't dress cute or try to look nice? No. Does it mean I now only wear non-descript bags for clothes? No. Does it mean I never tell a joke? No. But it does mean that I try to ensure that what I say, do, and wear doesn't distract from the name of Christ I've taken upon myself and the testimony I try to bear for Him each day. It means that my "comeliness" should be focused on holding up my light, Christ's light, not to place my own psychological neediness above that witness. And the result? I feel better about myself than ever before and I can talk, act, and dress with confidence that transcends the day-to-day. I have confidence not only before mankind, but before God... that's priceless.

#modesty is not about keeping other people from having bad thoughts. It's not about hiding. It's about "not getting in the way" of leading people to #jesus . Its about keeping our #christian #covenants . #modestfashion #mormonblogger #thedoctrinelady #mormon #ldsblogger #lds #modestishottest #doctrine #truth #fashion #dress #example #witness #missionary #truelove #truetohim
