Jacob and an Answer to Prayer

Jacob and an Answer to Prayer

As a newly ordained deacon, Jacob was passing the sacrament for what I believe was only the second time. He is a fine, nice young man with the rare distinction of being very blond similar to myself at his age. I looked up and saw him coming down the aisle. Frustrated and angry, I thought to myself, “I don’t even have a family or a son, but if I did have a son, he would probably look a lot like him.”

Zion Shall Yet Arise

We have the opportunity to take part in the great work of the Lord each day as we raise righteous families,support missionaries, pay tithing, share the gospel with others, teach nursery, attend to our temple work, and minister and serve those around us. Let each of us catch the vision of the Church through the eyes of Him whose Kingdom it is. 

Forgiving and Forgivness

Forgiving and Forgivness

Since we all sin, we are all in debt to the Savior who has made it possible, through the atonement, for us to be forgiven for our sins.  This is truth---all of us may be forgiven of our sins, no matter who we are, where we live, or our station in life.  All of us sin, all of us can be forgiven.  It is important that we teach ourselves and our children how to repent and how to forgive.
