Thoughts from Elder Eyring

Because you are so valuable, some of your trials may be severe!
When you walk in the light, you will feel at that moment some of the warmth and happiness that will be yours when you are welcomed home again with the hundreds and perhaps thousands of others whom you will bring, who have walked in the light because YOU DID!

The picture makes me feel warm.

I love this thought. It sincerely makes me want to be a better person so I can help others.

It is a great knowledge in my life to know that we can have light in our lives, even in the worst darkness, if we listen to, and follow the Holy Spirit who helps us to stay close to Christ. If we are close to Christ we become like him and then we can be an example to others. It is such beautiful knowledge and worth staying focused on.

Thank you :)

I love this! It made me think of my mom whom we just got back from visiting. She recently had a tiny glimspe...
She is certainly one who has followed the light and light surrounds her.
I will read this to her tomorrow. Thanks again!

Lovely post.

I love Elder Eyring.

Tonight for FHE we talked about your post, you know asking a question at conference. We went around the table and thought of a question to ask.

Then my sweet 7 year old said the prayer. He restated each question asd asked Heavenly Father to answer these questions in conference. It was the sweetest prayer.

Thanks for the post. m

LOVE the quote!! This is very fitting for those moments when we are wondering "why me?" Now there's some type of hope in know that someday the light and peace is not to far off.
