The Gospel Will Lift Us

The Gospel Will Lift Us

Many think of the commandments given to men by God as restrictions. Rules that hinder our free will, but if we really look at them they do just the opposite.
Because I keep the commandments, I not addicted to harmful substances that destroy my health and shorten my life.
Because I keep the commandments, I am not in jail for stealing or murder. I can walk freely down the street, greeting police friendly and I am not afraid of them, but know they are there to protect me.
Because I keep the commandments, I have a good relationship with my parents and speak many things openly with them and trust their opinions and advice.
Because I keep the commandments, I am sexual pure and do not have to worry about STDs.
Because I keep the commandments, my friends know they can trust me and I have their respect.
Because I keep the commandments, I know that God is my loving Father in Heaven. He cares for me daily and loves me more than I imagine.
Because I keep the commandments, I am happy and know where I can turn for peace and comfort.
I love The Gospel of Jesus Christ! And I love His commandments!

Remember the Meaning of Easter

I love Easter! And not because there’s chocolate. Though that is fun too.

I love the life of my Savior Jesus Christ and what he did for me and you so long ago. He loves us so much, and He gave his life so we could make ours better. There are so many things I have to be grateful to Him for. The list is too long to name, but I will say I am grateful for the chance to realize I have done wrong and to improve myself and make my life better than it ever could have been. 

I hope that at this time of year your thoughts are turned to the Savior, because it is because of Him, that all things are possible.

Below is a link to a video about what I have been speaking about. It gave me chills the first time I saw it. Take a look, and see what there is to be grateful for #BecauseofHim.
