Faith

Restored Relationship

As I was reading in the Book of Mormon this morning, this verse stood out to me…   “For behold, the promises which we have obtained are promises unto us according to the flesh; wherefore, as it has been shown unto me that many of our children shall perish in the flesh because of unbelief,...

Running into Jesus

At the end of the very first chapter in the Book of Mormon, Nephi tells us that he “will show unto us that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.” (1 Nephi 1:20). And then in...

Early Morning Temple

  One of my favorite parts about where I live is that I live so close to a temple. I feel very fortunate to live in a place that is surrounded by temples. My favorite time to go to the temple is early in the morning when it’s still dark outside. There is something symbolic...

Enjoying the Gardens and Prayer Journaling

This morning when I woke up, I decided that we would spend the morning at a nearby 55 acre garden.  So that’s what we did.  We were some of the first people there so we had it practically to ourselves for a little while.   The first thing we did was start out with prayer journaling. ...

I hadn’t ever been to the Old Nauvoo Burial Grounds (also known as the Pioneer Memorial Cemetery) before and until learning about...

God Gives Good Gifts: Part 3

While we were in Nauvoo a couple weeks ago, we got to do some sealing ordinances. After the sealing session was over, the sealer said that he had some neat things to show us. First, he took us to the celestial room and we sat in there for a few minutes. Jershon and I sat...
