You guys – I have too many CDs sitting in my house, but there are so many people who still use CDs because they don’t do the digital world.

Since I was a teen, just starting to write music, it has been my greatest desire to share my testimony of Jesus Christ. He makes all the difference in my life. I can’t imagine going through this life without knowing His gospel and how He can heal, bless and strengthen me during challenges. This knowledge brings peace. How do I know? Well, I have tested it.

My hands were in the dishwater when I began sobbing – the ugly face kind. I was a mess. My attitude stunk, and I was not a happy mama. I was probably more lonely than anything, and I reeeeally needed a casserole, or maybe just a hug, but no one was there to give me either. So I prayed….
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.
The following post is an article written by a woman who wishes to remain anonymous. Her story, supported by LDS doctrine, on the subject of energy healing, is something I thought was worth sharing here on To Lift and Inspire.
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.
