We were able to hear from John 5 different times throughout the cruise-- 

How blessed we are that he shares his knowledge and insight with us!
Here are just some highlights of what he talked about--
Of course he added stories and jokes and even more words of wisdom :)

O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day -D&C 4:2

When you board a ship or a train you cannot be part way on and part way off-- you need to commit one way or the other.

Also you need to actually be on the train or the boat-- you cannot be running along the side, or in the wilderness or the woods or on the cannot run behind or even in front...embark ON and stay on for the entire journey.

If we were to have a 15th Article of Faith it might say:
We believe in guilt-- But that is another lecture :)

Many people, however, do believe that we have a 14th Article of Faith

"We believe in meetings - all that have been scheduled, all that are now scheduled, and we believe that there will yet be scheduled many great and important meetings. We have endured many meetings and hope to to be able to endure all meetings. Indeed we may say that if there is a meeting, or anything that resembles a meeting, or anything that we might possibly turn into a meeting, we seek after these things." Source

So how do you get the most out of C.H.U.R.C.H?

C- CHOOSE to come prepared. Get enough sleep the night before, come ready to hear what the speaker has to say, pray for the speaker, pray for the Spirit to teach you personally. Chose to dress appropriately. Elder holland nov 1995

H- Holy Sabbath. Over the generations we have gone in our attitudes from the "Holy Sabbath" to the "Sabbath" to "Sunday" to "the weekend." Ezekiel 20:20

U- Unity. Be one. If ye are not one ye are not mine--

R- Respect. Show respect to your leaders and teachers and fellow church goers

C- Covenant. Taking upon you the name of the Son means to take upon you the work of the Son.

H- Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost will tell you all things which ye should do.

Arise and Shine - D&C 115
Here are some annoying alarm clocks to help wake us up

But what does a spiritual alarm sound like?

Is your spiritual alarm clock ringing? Then get up and glow!

Do you know someone who seems to have a light about them? Ask them why-

"You tell on yourself by the friends you seek,
By the very manner in which you speak,
By the way you employ your leisure time,
By the use you make of dollar and dime.
You tell what you are by the things you wear,
And in the way you do your hair,
By the kind of jokes that you applaud,
By the songs you play on your iPod.
You tell what you are by the way you walk,
By the things of which you text and talk,
By the manner in which you bear defeat,
By the simple a thing as the way you eat.
By the books you choose from the well-filled shelf,
IN these ways and more you tell on yourself."

We shall be known by our words--

Charity means love of Christ
Love for Christ
Love from Christ
Love like Christ

Choose friends who will take you to Christ
Be the kind of friend who will take others to Christ

"Small minds talk about people.
Mediocre minds talk about things/events
Great minds talk about ideas."
-Eleanor Roosevelt
