“Behold Your Little Ones.”

Friday, May 5th, 2006

Emergency Preparedness – “Behold Your Little Ones.”
 

    According to a UN report currently 52,000 children under age eight in third world countries die each day for want of basic living essentials.  That means that through the Savior’s atonement the Celestial Kingdom is expanding by over 18,980,000 souls each year.
     Most of the suffering in the world comes from lack of opportunity.  For little children God makes allowances.  The rest of us He blesses with opportunities.  Take all opportunities to provide well for you and your children.  Show the Lord your willingness in small things, and you will be added upon.
     Sometimes pride or “not being offered what I’m worth” get in the way of accepting employment opportunities, and we think that we are being treated poorly.  “It’s easier to work your way up from the inside, than to work your way in from the outside,” said one employer.  Whatever the wage offering, you can learn to live better on less.  The Lord has given you an Emergency Preparedness Specialist (ward specialist’s name and phone) to help.  Sometimes you have to ask for help . . . and share your opportunities.

Love or Money?

Emergency Preparedness – Love or Money?
 

     As the title suggests, there are only two reasons people go to work.  Fortunate is the person who can love what they do so much that they “go to play each day” instead of go to work at a job they hate.
     The great department store founder Marshall Field sought the following qualities in his hires:
1.  The importance of people.                               7.  The influence of example.
2.  The success of perseverance.                          8.  The obligation of duty.
3.  The pleasure of working.                                9.  The wisdom of economy.
4.  The dignity of simplicity.                              10.  The virtue of patience.
5.  The worth of character.                               11.  The value of time.
6.  The power of kindness.                                12.  The joy of originating.
      Over 78% of working Americans hate their job or wish they were working elsewhere.  Any job after we master it will prove to be repetitive and possibly boring unless we develop the value of the foregoing qualities.  WORK – it’s an attitude, not a four-letter word.  GET TO WORK!   (It’s a blessing.)

Win a Million Dollars

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

     As the story goes, the government advertised that anyone who could prove real need could win a grant for one million dollars.  Among the many that applied was a farmer.  When asked what he would do with the money, he replied, “I would just farm and farm and farm until it was all gone.”

     A farmer is a man outstanding in his field.  Most only work half days – from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., plus overtime.  They must work for love, because it can’t be the money.  We would starve without them.                                                                                                                                                                       There are only eight food exporting countries in the world and American farmers export more surplus than the other seven combined.  Each American farmer feeds about 200 city folks.  In China, one out of 200 people can live in the cities and off the farm.   Most farmers only own the dirt under their fingernails, and they are likely to leave nothing but debt to their beneficiaries if they don’t sell and retire on their equity. 

     American farmers are living proof that “the things people work for most are the things they are willing to give up least.”  Likewise, the things people work for least, they are willing to give up most. The Savior said: “the laborer is worthy of his heir.”  Win a million dollars and see why so many winners quickly lose what they didn’t work for.  Luck never makes a winner, work does. 

     Work hard as a family on the things that are of most worth – food, clothing, and shelter, all paid for.

Being Qualified in the Workplace

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

    Landing a Boeing 747 is to the pilot like bringing down a four story building.  He sits atop a forty foot flight deck.  With a wingspan of 211 feet, 5 inches, he has to find the end of a 150 foot wide runway, and often doesn’t see the runway until the last second.  Approach instruments (category three) can actually land the aircraft without the pilot touching anything if he knows how to use them.  At most foreign airports, the pilot takes over at the MDA (minimum descent altitude) of 250 feet on a precision approach and has to “hit the numbers” touching down at a ground speed of about 140 miles an hour.  Over 800,000 lbs. and 380 passenger lives depend on split second decisions from his hands, heart and head.

     Now, imagine landing a 747 without lights, in the dark, in a foreign country, with enemy all around.  That’s what the pilot of Air Force One did on Thanksgiving Day, 2003, for Pres. Bush at Bagdad Airport.

     Only those who were on board can perhaps appreciate the pilot’s skills.  “Never do rainbows (runways) look so good than to those who have flown through the darkest storms.” 

     It pays to get qualified for what you want to do in the workplace.  Your Emergency Preparedness Specialist can help introduce you to the Ward Employment Specialist.  Contact him at:____________.

LDS Employment Resource Center

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

     It is a known fact that 80% of all job opportunities in today’s work places are never advertised.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE THROUGH NETWORKING is where today’s job searchers find success.

     “He that is greatest among you is servant of all.”  The Lord’s temporal affairs officer is the Bishop.  His Ward Employment Specialist (WES) helps everyone with resources and networking education through LDSEC, located in the Magna Bishop’s Storehouse – 3545 South 7200 West.

     Many hands make work light.  What you know as an individual makes the work of a group much easier when you contribute.  Let WES know of people at your workplace that are retiring, moving, or leaving employment for any reason.  Talk with your boss to see if positions are being added.  Your eyes and ears are needed to network job opportunities for our neighbors.

     Be the answer to someone else’s prayers and assist in the job search process.
