FHE Idea- Making Sense of Dollars and Cents

"We must not allow our yearnings to exceed our earnings."
 -Pres. Thomas S. Monson, "Peace, Be Still," Ensign, Nov. 2002, 54.

"Avoid the philosophy that yesterday's luxuries have become today's necessities. They aren't necessities unless we make them so ....I urge you to live within your means."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson, "True to the Faith," Ensign, May 2006, 19.
