One small step for my brother and Grandma and one huge step for my eternal family! Thanks to many prayers and missionary efforts on behave of a lot of people two of my most loved family members have joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! Words can't express the happiness that I felt on both days.
As you all know my family moved in with us and oh how heavenly father knows exactly what we need and when we need it! Things have just managed to work out and our family has grown so much closer as a result and it has been so much fun having FHE every week with the whole crew, except my mom keeps telling me she thought FHE was about playing games not always having a spirtual lesson...so I have to work on that!! HAHA! So my parents are still holding out but their days are numbered!
My mom wanted a picture of the future priesthood holders of our family, seriously her words!
It has been quite an experience talking with both my brother and grandmother about gospel principles and doctrines. It is about the neatest thing to hear these people you have grown up loving no matter what talking about how much they wished everyone could know what they now know and how much they want to share this glad message to everyone they know and love! There has come a whole new spiritual connectedness I never knew that I could experience so soon! I love this gospel so much and I am a firm believer that Heavenly Father hears our prayers and feels the deepest and truest desires of our hearts and that if we are only patient and believe in his timeframe and keep the faith all will work out according to his will.
I am so greatful each and every day for my husband for giving me the most precious gift that anyone can ever give, the gospel of Jesus Christ. Now I am proud to say I am not the only member in my family! And I know that my parents will one day join the group too and I can't wait to be able to be sealed to my family for time and all eternity! Count your many blessings...
