Peace in the Storm

This anxiety thing is new. I don’t want to go into details because it’s still very painful and difficult for me to process. And even though the Anxiety level is new, I’ve always been “high stressed”, so much so that my parents used to always repeat a poem about “worry” to me as a young child.

"Lead Me, Guide Me, Walk Beside Me."

In the pre-earth life God designed his plan to give us free agency. We wanted to be able to choose for ourselves which is why we shouted for joy for this plan, given that we would have a Savior who could provide a way for us to be saved from our sins.

The Shepherd Doesn't Sleep

“To all mothers everywhere, past, present, or future, I say ‘thank you.’ Thank you for giving birth, for shaping souls. For forming character and for demonstrating the pure love of Christ… to all mothers in very circumstance, including those who struggle-and all will, I say, ‘you are doing better than you think you are!’…In fact, you are saviors on Mount Zion, and like the master you follow, your love never faileth.”
