In His Constant Care

We are all in the hands of the Savior, and are as little children. May we look to him, trustingly, obediently, and with a desire to serve him, and we will find eternal life. For the Savior has said "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/18.3 ).

The Temple "I knew that I was in the presence of the Savior of the World"


From a man who was in the Presence of the Savior in the Temple, "I was unable to see him, but I heard his voice declare unto me, as he came towards me in the celestial room, that he had come to me in his house, and then I felt of his presence and his love for me. I have never felt love like that before, and I knew that I was in the presence of the Savior of the World." The Blessings of the Temple are available to all the pure in heart, as the Doctrine and Covenants says "my glory shall rest upon it; Yea, and my presence shall be there, for I will come into it, and all the pure in heart that shall come into it shall see God" (D & C 97:15-16 http://bit.ly/14GTNd6 )

The temple is the house of the Lord. May we all go there often to feel of the spirit, and to feel of the presence of the Lord as we are able to do the work and feel the gratitude of those who have gone before us.

How must the Savior pray for us?


Plz take a moment to read this. How must the Savior pray for us? What marvelous things he must ask the Father for on our behalf? "And when he had said these words, he himself also knelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written, and the multitude did bear record who heard him. And after this manner do they bear record: The eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father; And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father" (3 Nephi 17:15-17 http://bit.ly/180Iu2k ).

The Savior, Jesus Christ


"While painting The Savior, I wanted to emphasize characteristics such as kindness, purity, and love. The result is an image of a loving Christ that appears to be looking at us in admiration. His subtle smile expresses a wonderful feeling of acceptance. We must remember to see each other as Christ would see us, as friends and children of God with great potential." - Del Parson

"We have the gospel of Jesus Christ to shape and guide our lives if we choose it. And with prophets revealing to us our place in the plan of salvation, we can live with perfect hope and a feeling of peace...In all conditions, we can choose the right with the guidance of the Spirit.

Christ in Emmaus

After he was resurrected, the Savior taught two men on the road to emmaus.  They invited him to stay with them and he went and then disappeared from their presence.  As the scriptures say of the experience "And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?"

May we our hearts burn within us as we follow the Savior's words in our own lives, and as the scriptures are opened to us by reading or by the Lord's servants.

Let your light so shine

As I held my 4 year-old daughter close, I realized that she lets her light shine, as do all little children. Is it any wonder that the Savior loves little children?

The Savior has said And said, "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/18.3 )

May we all let our lights shine, as do little children, for the Savior said "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/5.16 ).

Learn of Me

Today's message and picture come from Liz Lemon Swindle, the artist, who continues to paint with Rheumatoid Arthritis even though every brushstroke is painful. "Early in His ministry, Jesus sat on the shores of Galilee and said to the multitudes, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden... take my yoke upon you, and learn of me... and you shall find rest unto your souls."
(Matthew 11:28-29)

We each feel "heavy laden" at times and pray the Lord will take away our burdens. But rather than remove our sufferings the Lord instead asks us to walk alongside Him yoked together. It is only as we walk with Him we come to learn who He is and how much He loves us. While our burdens are still upon our shoulders, when we walk together with the Lord and let Him carry them our burdens feel lighter and we find the rest He gives so freely."

Emma Smith, and a survey to take about her

Of Emma Smith it has been said “I have never seen a woman in my life, who would endure every species of fatigue and hardship, from month to month, and from year to year, with that unflinching courage, zeal, and patience, which she has ever done; for I know that which she has had to endure—she has been tossed upon the ocean of uncertainty—she has breasted the storms of persecution, and buffeted the rage of men and devils, which would have borne down almost any other woman.”

The Joseph Smith Jr and Emma Hale Smith Historical Society have a survey for people to fill out about Emma Smith. It is just 5 questions. Please take the time to go fill out this short survey for the church. It is located online at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1j3F1e3cwVEirrd5dWN6MeHNw68nDPIPc00iscKzelPU/viewform

The Living Christ

"We are counseled to “look forward with an eye of faith” to the day we will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ (Alma 5:15)...The red robe in this painting symbolizes the Atonement for our sins, for when Christ comes again He shall be “clothed in a vesture dipped in blood” (Revelations 19:13). This painting is meant to be emblematic of the glory and intensity we would feel coming before of the Living Christ." -Joseph Brickey, the artist of this painting, The Living Christ.

"Come unto me, all ye that Labour and are Heavy Laden..."


The Lord invites all to come to him and find rest. He says "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30 http://bit.ly/15li8b6)

May we all come to the Savior and find rest through studying his words and pouring our hearts out in prayer to Our Father in Heaven in the Savior's name. And may we invite others to do the same through our words and through our service to them.

Light of the World


In a world seemingly full of turmoil, the Love of the Savior stretches from before the foundations of the Earth into the eternities and beyond. It never ends. The power of his love can change our hearts, and prepare us to live in the presence of God. Our salvation is his very reason for existence. He is personal enough to know the pains in the quiet chambers of our hearts, and can help transform those into lives filled with Love. He can work miracles in all of our lives, and truly does, if we but have faith and come unto him. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 14:6 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/14.6?lang=eng#5 ;John 3:16 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/3.16?lang=eng#15 )

"...Many of the Noble and Great Ones..."

All of us stood strong for Christ in the premortal life when the plan of Salvation was presented. Prophets and Apostles have said that many were among the noble and great ones. May we all stand strong for Christ, as we did before we were born. Please take a moment to read what Abraham said about when the plan was presented and know that you were there:

"Now the Lord had shown unto me, Abraham, the intelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the noble and great ones;

And God saw these souls that they were good, and he stood in the midst of them, and he said: These I will make my rulers; for he stood among those that were spirits, and he saw that they were good; and he said unto me: Abraham, thou art one of them; thou wast chosen before thou wast born.

And there stood one among them that was like unto God, and he said unto those who were with him: We will go down, for there is space there, and we will take of these materials, and we will make an earth whereon these may dwell;

And we will prove them herewith, to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them;

And they who keep their first estate shall be added upon; and they who keep not their first estate shall not have glory in the same kingdom with those who keep their first estate; and they who keep their second estate shall have glory added upon their heads for ever and ever.

And the Lord said: Whom shall I send? And one answered like unto the Son of Man: Here am I, send me. And another answered and said: Here am I, send me. And the Lord said: I will send the first.

And the second was angry, and kept not his first estate; and, at that day, many followed after him." (Abraham 3:22-28 http://bit.ly/1apGWz8 )

For Women's Day, The Hands of Heaven on Earth


Something for Women's Day today. The Relief Society teaches that the women in our lives are the hands of heaven on earth, and there is no phrase more descriptive I can think of than that to describe the women and mothers in our lives. May we realize the divine nature they have, and show the love to these daughters of God that the Savior would show to them if he were here. For they are righteously raising his children. And to those who have no children. You make such wonderful contributions, and the Lord has promised that if you don't have children here, you will in the next, and that no blessing will be witheld from you in the eternities.
From President Hinckley "wherever you may live, may the windows of heaven be opened and blessings come down upon you. May you live with love one for another. May you reach down to lift up those whose burdens are heavy. May you bring light and beauty to the world and particularly into your homes and into the lives of your children.
You know as I do that God our Eternal Father lives. He loves you. You know as I do that Jesus is the Christ, His immortal Son, our Redeemer. You know that the gospel is true and that heaven is near if we will cultivate it in our lives.”

An Apostle's testimony of the Risen Lord


From an apostle of the Lord, one who has seen the Resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ. "I witness that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He suffered and died for our sins and rose the third day. He is resurrected. In a future day, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is the Christ. On that day, our concern will not be, 'Do others consider me Christian?' At that time, our eyes will be fixed on Him, and our souls will be riveted on the question, 'What thinks Christ of me?'"

“With all my heart and the fervency of my soul, I lift up my voice in testimony as a special witness and declare that God does live. Jesus is His Son, the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is our Redeemer; He is our Mediator with the Father. He it was who died on the cross to atone for our sins. He became the firstfruits of the Resurrection. Because He died, all shall live again...

May we all return to our Father in Heaven again by relying on the Atonement of the Savior, Jesus Christ.  Every blessing we receive, every good deed done, every comfort we receive from the spirit, each gift we have is all centered on the Savior.  May we dedicate ourselves to giving more to him and to others.  May we devote our lives to doing his work, even if it is just serving others in our homes.  In this way we will find peace.  


The Savior loves us more than we could ever imagine.  Pour your hearts out to Father in Heaven and let him know how much you love him and his beloved Son and our Elder Brother.  Wait for the sweet peace of the spirit that will let you know how much they love you.

This is my Beloved Son. Hear Him.


Plz share. "I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!"

Bible Stories


Because of the Holy Ghost, When we and our children read in the scriptures it is as if the Savior himself were sitting there with us, instructing us. May we read, ponder, and pray about the scriptures. The Savior has said, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." (John 14:26 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/14.26?lang=eng#25 ) Picture Bible Stories by Greg Olsen

To Be With God

Plz take a moment to read this. How must the Savior pray for us? What marvelous things he must ask the Father for on our behalf? "And when he had said these words, he himself also knelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written, and the multitude did bear record who heard him. And after this manner do they bear record: The eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father; And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father" (3 Nephi 17:15-17 http://bit.ly/180Iu2k ).
