Ballet and the Book of Mormon—Practicing for Perfection


The truths of the Book
of Mormon have the power to heal, comfort, restore,
strengthen, console, and cheer our souls. What I love so much about dance
is, nobody’s perfect at it. I spend a lot of my time
adjusting and tweaking my movements to get
them just right. And that is similar to life. I think to be a good disciple of
Christ, it does take hard work. I think that also, it just
takes having a positive attitude and always trying
and never giving up, because there are times in our
life that things will be hard. And those times are going to
make us stronger in the end. 2 Nephi chapter 32,
verse 9: “But behold, I say unto you that ye must
pray always, and not faint; that ye must not
perform any thing unto the Lord save in the
first place ye shall pray unto the Father in
the name of Christ, that he will consecrate
thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be
for the welfare of thy soul.”

    Pray our way through the day – I love this concept taught by Gene R. Cook. We can't just start and end our day with prayer and expect to receive all that God has for us. We should use prayer as a tool.
