Hope, an Anchor to the Soul

Happy Sunday everyone! Just popping in to share a favorite scripture and printable with you! I’m excited to make this a new tradition the first Sunday of each month, as a group of blog friends and I join together to #sharegoodness!

Hope, an anchor to the soul

During family scriptures one morning this week, we read this verse.

“Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.” – Ether 12:4

I love this scripture so much, I wanted to turn it into a printable that I could pin up on the fridge where I could read it often. We all have struggles and as I’ve dealt with the things that have come my way, it’s been my hope in the Savior that has gotten me through and brought me peace, even in the most difficult times.

You can download an 8×10 or 3×4 printable of the scripture by clicking the link below.

This talk by Elder James E. Faust focuses on this message of Hope and is such a powerful testimony to me of the love the Savior has for each of us and in it he shared this quote by Samuel Smiles:

“Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey towards it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. Hope sweetens the memory of experiences well loved. It tempers our troubles to our growth and our strength. It befriends us in dark hours, excites us in bright ones. It lends promise to the future and purpose to the past. It turns discouragement to determination.”

I just love that and pray that as a new week starts I can find peace and comfort in my challenges and turn discouragement into determination through the hope I have in my Savior.
