    the Savior and renew our appreciation for the great gift of His perfect life and atoning sacrifice. In the scripture accounts of His birth, we find patterns of discipleship--from Samuel the Lamanite, who courageously prophesied of His coming, to the Nephites who looked...

    Today, I learned that Heavenly Father's hand

    lies within all things. His tender mercies are everywhere and we need to learn to see it everyday, because He is in every aspect of our lives. Sometimes we or others feel abandoned by God, especially during times of trials, but that's never true. He doesn't let us deal with...

    For Those Who Aren'T Members, Don'T Beleive, Or Want To Know.

    Faith is things which are hoped for but not seen...No man can know if its true until he has faith. So, the only thing I can tell you is to pray about it. If not, I promise you will be missing great happiness. Take it from me, a convert. I've seen both sides.
