Prophet Thomas S. Monson, president of the LDS Church, spoke on the importance of recognizing the blessings that occur in our lives. President Monson said his daily journal has allowed him to take a step back and recognize specific examples from his own past that he thought to be small and insignificant at the time. He expressed that by doing this we can find greater happiness.

"I would recommend this same exercise to you — namely, that you take an inventory of your life and look specifically for the blessings, large and small, that you have received. …The Lord is in all of our lives. He loves us. He wants to bless us. He wants us to seek his help. As he guides us, and directs us and as he hears and answers his prayers, we will find the happiness here and now that he desires for us."

President Monson spoke Sunday morning on "Consider the Blessings."
