“Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family.” -Thomas S. Monson
This talk is one of my favorites mainly because it helps me keep a perspective on things. When we prioritize our lives to the things that matter most like our friends and families the care of everyday life seems to subside and dissolve away.
I am grateful for a living prophet who can speak these words of encouragement with the same love that the Savior has. I am grateful for His great sacrifice which makes this life worth something. I am grateful for the Restoration, to have the correct doctrine of Jesus Christ in its complete form is a blessing I love to share. I know that these things are true and invite you to search, ponder, and pray for divine guidance in finding what is right and true forever and ever. These things I leave with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Elder Kent F. Richards was here in Arcata on assignment to reorganize the Eureka Stake Presidency this past weekend. I got to meet him and speak in three different occasions. One of which was a special meeting for those who were new to the LDS church and those who were investigating it. It was a wonderful meeting which centered around 2 Nephi 31 and the doctrine of Christ. Which is made possible by the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
I remember this talk given at April 2011 General Conference and I really liked it. I hope you can feel the Spirit of the Lord as he speaks and testifies of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and its unmatched ability to heal bumps, bruises, scratches and scars both seen and unseen. I know that it is because of the Atonement I can have a happy life, a purposeful life, and a hopeful life with an eternal family. I leave these things with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
