Create.



This is one of my favorite talks by Elder Uchtdorf. I've been thinking about this talk even more lately since I'm pregnant. I get these weekly emails that update me on the development of the baby, and it never ceases to amaze me. Just think, with the help of our loving Heavenly Father.... I'm creating a person! Someone who can change the world.

I think that all of us have that innate desire to create something. I love being crafty, I love using my hands to make something. That's one of the reasons I love this blog! It's a chance for me to share something that I've created.

I want to share one quote from this talk that wasn't shared.  “What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. So what if the eggs are greasy or the toast is burned? Don’t let fear of failure discourage you.” I think so many of us can easily get caught up in the fear of failure. I know I do! It's important for us to try to get past that so we can take a chance. Who knows, maybe you'll be better than you think.
