We know it takes a village to raise a child. Let’s strengthen the walls around that village. Let’s make family first again. Home is where our story begins. Where would we be without family? Family comes in many forms, but regardless, family is everything and is definitely worth fighting for.
This year I have set a goal to read the Book of Mormon more intently. No skimming. No reading tired, late at night. I am using my spirit eyes to see more clearly what is really being written and my spirit ears to hear more plainly what the Lord is saying – to me.
Recognizing the voice of the spirit is something the Lord wants us to master. The language of the Spirit is the most important language we could ever learn. It is such a gift to us as learn it. As we “tune in” and do those things which bring us closer to the Lord, His spirit will manifest truth, comfort us, direct us, sanctify us, fill us with hope and love, and bear witness that we are the children of God.
“Prayerful study of the Book of Mormon will build faith in God the Father, in His Beloved Son, and in His gospel. It will build your faith in God’s prophets, ancient and modern. It can draw you closer to God than any other book. It can change a life for the better.” – President Henry B. Eyring
“…Feast upon the words of Christ, for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.” 2 Nephi 32:3
We are all at different places in our own journey, learning and growing. We are all striving to narrow that gap between what we know to be right and how we live those truths.
There are so many good things to do, but we can’t do all of them. Our Heavenly Father is most pleased when we sacrifice something good for something far greater with an eternal perspective.
