The little cards with three invitations to act are intended to bring us and our friends closer to our Heavenly Father and our Savior. Our Father’s plan of salvation for his children is often called the Plan of Happiness. It is called this for a good reason. Those who learn of it, and then act upon the things they learn, feel the blessings of the Holy Spirit and discover new happiness often unlike anything previously experienced.
If you haven’t yet responded to the invitation to bring a friend, perhaps these summer months are a good time to ask someone to join you for a walk, for something to eat, or to come to church to listen to you or a friend speak.
If you would like to be more self-reliant spiritually or temporally, you could pray with more purpose and read the Book of Mormon with greater intent this month. If you haven't been a saver, it is never too late to start. Put a little money aside each week and each month, and practice living within your means.
If you need help with bringing a friend and becoming spiritually and temporally self-reliant, then find an ancestor. There are extraordinary connections between the generations of our families on both sides of the veil, and every aspect of our lives here on earth is blessed as we turn our hearts to our ancestors. We only discover these blessings when we take simple steps to find them and to perform saving ordinances on their behalf in the temple.
You will probably be amazed at what happens in your life when you respond to these three invitations. When you act in faith in these three simple ways, Heavenly Father’s plan becomes more real to you. It really does become the Plan of Happiness.
The difference between anxiety and peace is often little things, small steps that can be easily overlooked because they seem too simple and too routine. Take these steps this summer and see what they can do for you, your family, and your friends.
