This week we had Jon's baptism. It was so special. :) He was SO excited and just glowing with joy. That same joy extended over into his confirmation as well. As 4 of us gathered around him to bestow him with this beautiful gift our Savior has made available, his long journey was fulfilled. :) He plans on serving a mission and already has probably handed out more copies of the Book of Mormon than we have! Haha!
past week I have been able to dive into the Book of Mormon and especially of
late, learn more of its importance. The Book of Mormon is everything. As we fan
the pages of that book, we will feel a spiritual fan pushing the winds of
conversion upon our souls. As we learn from Alma, Amulek, Nephi, Lehi, Enos,
Omni, Jacob, Moroni, Helaman, Jared, and especially our Savior himself and
everyone in between, we will find great peace, joy, and a love from our Savior that
is indescribable. As Elder Holland stated, "No wicked man could write it
and no good man would, unless it were the will of God and inspired." It IS
inspired. It IS the will of God. The Book is true, blue and the key to our
happiness! :) If anyone feels so inclined as to gain a stronger testimony of
this book, watch Elder Holland's "Safety for the Soul." Also, in
light of Mother's Day, please watch the video on LDS.org titled It Was Mom and
share it with someone!
