Happy Easter

Although the Savior was alone when he atoned for all the sins of the world. We do not have to be alone when we are facing trials, pains and afflictions. The Savior suffered for all of the pains of the world because he loved us all so much. He gave his life so we can return to our father in Heaven again someday. This is the greatest gift that we could ever receive. I am so grateful for this gift we have all received. I know that the Savior loves us all and is very aware us. I know the Savior lives.

How can I be?

Today I finished the Book of Mormon. It is a bittersweet feeling because this time that I read it I honestly have felt as if I knew Nephi, Moroni, Ammon, Abinadi, Captain Moroni, Samuel the Lamanite and all the other people in the Book of Mormon. I feel as if I understand their character a little more this time and it makes me want to strive to be bold like them. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have prayed about it so many times and each time I pray about it I receive the same feeling and answer: that it is true. I love the peace that this book brings me each time I read.

I have seen this video many times before but this time it truly made me think "How can I be more like my Savior?". I think it is a good question to have a reality check for ourselves and to show what we personally need to work on to become more like these great people from the Book of Mormon.

Mountains to Climb

No matter what trials we are going through, the Savior Jesus Christ can help to make our burdens light if we have faith in him.
