Thanksgiving: Inspirational Quotes

This year, I am grateful for the wisdom of others. Although we are told to read the Lord's Word on our own every day, I find that in addition to that I rely so much on others to help me along the way. Be it through teachers, ministers, friends, or strangers, I find I am constantly inspired by others in my journey to discovering what the Lord wants me to do. In this post I have included a number of quotes that have inspired me to look at spiritual life differently, as a mark of my gratitude for the help of others along my path to finding the Lord. I hope you enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!
