Eternal Truth

The one thing that I LOVE about the gospel is the hope that it brings my family and I. As I think of my family I cant help but think that I want to be with them forever not just here on earth but once we leave this life.  I am so grateful to have the knowledge of knowing that no matter what happens in this life, if I live my life the way the Lord has taught and try my hardest to live the my life to the best of my ability, I will see them again and live with them forever!

"The Divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally" 

May we never forget the hope and love that the gospel brings to us individually and to our families.

Christ our Savior and Redeemer

This song I stand all amazed expresses the way I feel about my Savior Jesus Christ!

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.

I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,
That he should extend his great love unto such as I,
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.

I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.

As I think of His sacrifice for me and for each and everyone of us I stand all amazed. It is amazing to think that He loves us so much that he would give His life for us.

Easter Sunday is this weekend. As we approach this day let us not forget of our Savior's Sacrifice for each and everyone of us.
"May we stand by Jesus Christ at all times, and in all things, and in all places that we may be in, even until death, for surely that is how he stood by us"
