Wouldn't you know that this month's First Presidency Message from Pres. Monson would include the following:      "To live greatly, we must develop the capacity to face trouble with courage, disappointment with cheerfulness, and triumph with humility."   
  Knowing these words were sent from Heaven for us, we continue with Pres. Monson's declaration: " "You ask, “How might we achieve these goals?” I answer, “By gaining a true perspective of who we really are!” We are sons and daughters of a living God, in whose image we have been created. Think of that: created in the image of God. We cannot sincerely hold this conviction without experiencing a profound new sense of strength and power. "

Guess we all need to carry around an 'I Am A Child of God' scripture box:

mount it on heavy paper. Cut around the solid black line. Fold on the dotted lines to make a box. Glue the end flaps. Fold the top end flap to close the box, but don't glue it shut. Draw or glue a picture of yourself inside the blank frame. Read the scripture reference on each side of the box.

Cut out the scripture reference strips, and place them in the box. Each day choose a reference, and mark it in your scriptures. The scriptures will remind you who you are. Share the box during family home evening.
