Gibo's Word of Wisdom

Recently the La Carlota Philippines District of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints conducted its semi-annual conference this month of August.

Church leaders were always prepared for their messages on the topic relevant to the spirituality of the members.

In short, they're tasked to give their words of wisdom, words of inspiration for the strengthening and edifying of their members' faith.

Gibo, a fond name for Gilbor Jr., who is my youngest son, took time to jot down any statement coming from President Christopher Barredo, Bacolod Philippines Mission President. He regarded them as a source of inspiration.

Gibo collected them and piled them up and posted them in his FB account to share and label them as #GiboWordOfWisdom which could be considered as maxims, sayings, or source for encouragement.

I love what Gibo was doing. I want his collections which he categorized and transformed them into an image quotation be shared for the readers to contemplate upon for their way of life.

  3. Express not impress. People don't care how much we know as long as they know how much we care. Very true. If we're all say and talk but they don't feel the care through our walk, then the talk is useless. Words of wisdom indeed.

  8. "People don't care how much we know as long as they know how much we care."

    That's a nice quote, it speaks from a person who truly cares. The world would be a better place if we made an effort to show each other how much we care about them.

  9. Those quotes sound very good but they would still need to be implemented properly for them to work wonders in your life. Yes, there is a switching point in life, but which way to turn is your own decision.

  12. Service is not only about helping but also touching lives. As a nurse, i could relate to this. During my community services during my college days, we are required to help people from the not so well-endowed families from communities. It really is such a privilege to see that they are very thankful with what we have accomplished in their area. We definitely saw how we touched their lives even with simple things :)
