See what surprised me on my Family Coat of Arms. Visit my HealingYourFamily Blog today.
Henry B. Eyring is an amazing man. He has been an example to me of humble faith and devotion to God and family. He spoke at the Vatican Summit where faith leaders discussed marriage. The points he listed at the end of what he said are possible to achieve if two people are committed to walking together in love. With faith in God and a commitment to one’s spouse, generations of children can be benefitted and blessed.
I am also a witness of how a single parent can press forward in faith and still influence children for good. We still need to know how to be faithful IN family settings and, by listening to his words, we can help our children gain insight and understanding, too. If you are one that has carried heartache and heartbreak–even from childhood–his words may help you make sense, clearly, of what was missing or what went wrong.
Let’s change the trend of destructive thoughts, words and actions that we carry into marriage and relationships. Henry B. Eyring suggests how it is possible. I encourage you to listen to his words.
I’ve included the link to the text under the video.
I love this song! Maybe you can relate, too.
“I might be down, but I’m not dead….There’s a light, and I still see it….Even after all I see, there’s hope.”
My hope is in God. I will sincerely ask for, gratefully receive and willingly follow His guidance and direction.
Today, as I watched the video below, I was touched by the look in Thomas’ face (near the end) while seeing the wounds in Christ’s hands from the nails driven through them—healed, but remaining as a witness that it was, indeed, Jesus Christ.
I thought that he must be thinking, “But I saw you suffer!” Suffering, then death, then resurrection—so that all the children of mankind may be resurrected and reunited with our Heavenly Father. How glorious. How amazing. How loving. How kind. Glory be to God for His sacrifice and loving kindness unto us all.
Thomas must have been astounded. Seeing Christ die then live again! It was unheard of, beyond comprehension, until the EXPERIENCE changed Thomas life through his experiential understanding.
I’ve learned that spiritual experiences are not only things you see, but witnesses to our hearts through feelings. I’ve learned through countless experiences, especially experiences with suffering, that Christ still lives and loves us all. I know that the God to which he ascended IS our Heavenly Father, and that Heavenly Father DOES hear and answer our prayers. Not only did Jesus provide the resurrection, that someday our own body can reunite with our own spirit, but I humbly and deeply appreciate the price Christ paid to make a way that we might repent of our sins (change our hearts and ways) in order to be reunited someday with Heavenly Father. It’s a great feeling to know we can qualify for blessings instead of punishments (no matter what we’ve done), through the great gift of the Atonement that Christ provides IF we will repent, humbly and sincerely, and ask for his mercy to cleanse us from our sins, so that we will no longer be spiritually separated from God, we will find peace, and comfort and HOPE.
My hope is in Christ. “He paid a price he didn’t owe because we owed a debt we could not pay.” It is in He whom I put my trust.
From the words of Thomas S. Monson: No words in Christendom mean more to me than those spoken by the angel to the weeping Mary Magdalene and the other Mary when, on the first day of the week, they approached the tomb to care for the body of their Lord. Spoke the angel: “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen.” Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed.
May this video bring you peace, understanding and reassurance. Happy Easter!
I have been consoling a loved one who is going through agonizing pain. I remember the days, years ago, when my own heart was breaking. I would sit in my green rocker, and while holding my baby and rocking and rocking I would sing this song of hope, commitment and peace (click video) . I struggled to keep my perspective. It was comforting, and wisdom eventually emerged from the pain of long ago. I am grateful for the life, teachings and mission of Jesus Christ–who can set all things right, for the innocent and even for the offenders, if they call upon his name in prayer with humility in their heart and align themselves with His teachings. Hope you enjoy the video.
Full commitment to God is in my heart today. I was very moved by this video. I know there’s people in the world whose own lives feel like a recurring 9/11 everyday. They suffer effects from abuse, addiction, divorce, death of a loved one and other mountainous traumas and want to be happy, whole and healed. They are the Generational ChangeMakers I seek at www.FamilyTreeQuest.com. Watch the looks on the faces of those in this video. Do you know someone with the same look in their eyes? Maybe it’s you. JOIN THE QUEST at www.familytreequest.com Help is on its way.
Watch this video featuring Dr. Lewis, a renowned scientist who advises the NASA Space program. He believes in God. His perspective is fascinating.
- We existed before we came to earth.
- We all lived with God as spirits before we were born.
- The Creation of earth is an integral part of Heavenly Father’s plan for us.
Heavenly Father: the architect of existence Jesus Christ: the builder

He says we are first and foremost eternal beings. “Gain a new perspective on who you are, where you are and what’s around you.”
Before we were born, we lived with God, the Father of our spirits. All persons on earth are literally brothers and sisters in God’s family.
Now that’s some Family History story!
Dr Lewis says, “I have to think of my relationship with my Heavenly Father as something I want to recapture. So instead of being oriented toward that past, I’m oriented toward it’s future–toward a reunification with Heavenly Father.
It’s all one big whole. It’s all one consistent story.
