For anyone reading this who doesn't know how this line ends, it's from a children's song, and it goes like this, "I always want to be with my own family...and the Lord has shown me how I can." The Lord has literally shown us how we can live with our families forever in his presence. Is there anything more important for us to know?
There were so many talks in General Conference about strengthening family. And like a sponge I tried to soak up every word. But I am also excited to re-read and study their guidance in-depth over the next while.
We had General Conference Book Club yesterday as we do every week at my house. I cannot believe we've been doing this for a full year of Tuesdays!
How much I've learned. How much I've grown.
What an amazing blessing it is to know that God still speaks through living prophets to men on earth. He is not silent on the issues that matter most to us. What a blessing it is to be able to study their words together with other faithful LDS women...in my home, every week. I am truly, truly blessed.
We are blessed to know that the Savior lives and speaks through his prophets, to know that his work did not stop at the tomb, but continues today.
Thanks to all of you for "talking of Christ and rejoicing in Christ" with me this last year.
