Sister Dalton is an amazing example and leader. I got the chance to not only meet her but chat with her for some time after the opening ceremony of the Internation Art Competition and Exhibit going on at the church history museum.
We, as human beings, owe it to each other to look out for one another; because we don’t know each other’s stories or what one person has been through. What we say could have more affect than we thought possible and we don’t know how someone will take our words.Just like the ancient philosopher, Plato, said it: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”His words still slip into my mind and resonate with my soul every once in a while.How many people do you walk by over one twenty-four hour period? They each have a life just like yours: worries, trials, hopes and dreams.What got them to this point and where are they going?People of every color on the personality color test dot the earth. It may be hard to see eye to eye with a different shade but our story is only one out of the 7 billion out there.So what makes it more important than any of them?We should be willing to listen to other’s opinions or ideas.

Only the worlds best seminary teacher. And thats the truth.
Learning about the events that took place in the New Testament from him was unforgettable. He simply taught from the spirit and spending 95 minutes with the spirit every other day for a whole semester can change a person.
i won't soon forget about this semester I had in that class.
