The Just Shall Live By Faith

"Men and women of faith trust in their merciful Heavenly Father—even during times of uncertainty, even during times of doubt and adversity when they may not see perfectly or understand clearly.
Men and women of faith earnestly walk the path of discipleship and strive to follow the example of their beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. Faith motivates and, indeed, inspires us to incline our hearts to heaven and to actively reach out, lift up, and bless our fellowmen."
-President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "The Just Shall Live by Faith,"
Ensign, April 2017

He Is Risen: Principles of Peace

Here is some inspiration for your Easter week!

Enjoy! Happy Easter!
Jesus Christ in white robes and a red sash, standing on a cloud in the air, surrounded by thousands of angels blowing trumpets.

"And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
But there IS a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
 He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more deathTeach them that redemption cometh through Christ the Lord, who is the very Eternal Father."

Mosiah 16 (emphasis added).


Words of the Prophet

These truths from Conference really spoke to me. So grateful that we have a living prophet on earth today, Thomas S. Monson!! Watching Conference reminded me to keep him in my prayers. I know that God reveals His words to the prophet He has called, just as He did to prophets in the Bible and The Book of Mormon.

I know that if you pray to God, He will listen. If you ask Him a question with the intent to do His will, He will answer. In God's time, you can come to know for yourself that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know, because I've followed the steps and felt the Holy Ghost confirm it to me. I know, and so can you!

It's Here Again...

This is an exciting weekend! Tomorrow is the General Women's Session of Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We will be blessed to receive counsel from church leaders, with more coming next Saturday and Sunday during General Conference and the General Priesthood Session. For times and viewing options, go HERE.

After Conference is over, all talks and musical numbers will be available to watch, listen to, and download from LDS.org and The Mormon Channel.

During Conference, we will be able to hear from God's living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, as well as apostles and other church leaders. I know that if you pray about questions you have or something you need, God will speak to you through General Conference. Go with an open heart and plan to act on the personal revelation you receive.

I know that God ordains prophets to lead and guide us and to teach us His plan. I know that if we follow their counsel and guidance, we will receive more wisdom and we will be blessed to know of God's love for us. We can come to know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer as we hear the words of His living prophets and apostles.

In preparation for General Conference, my seminary teacher had us read this talk by Elder Paul V. Johnson. While it is directed toward the priesthood brethren, it applies to all of us. Another talk I love is from Elder Holland: "Tomorrow the Lord Will Do Wonders among You."  This is just a small sample from the feast of wisdom, love, and revelation we can choose to receive through General Conference.

Until then, click over here for some inspirational messages about Jesus Christ and His gospel.
