Holy cow, have y'all seen the new #BecauseHeLives Easter video? SO STINKING GOOD.

discover His sacrifice
embrace His teachings
share His joy

So this is the invitation: 
-take a picture
-share your testimony about Jesus Christ on social media
-use the hashtag #becausehelives

This week was good! The weather is warming up and the snow is melting and the people are coming out! How grateful we are!

How wonderful was that Women's conference?! Talk about GIRL POWER.

Let us ALL become well-acquainted with the One who knows our challenges and struggles. He loves us so much--especially His daughters!

Also... BROTHER NEWALL DID BAPTISMS IN THE TEMPLE AND PASSED THE SACRAMENT. Wow. What a beautiful thing. His first baptism was for his father. How special?! And at church, he was so nervous. I still will never be able to figure out the sacrament passing system.

Also, can we just talk about FAMILY HISTORY AND TEMPLE WORK? It's is truly the work of the Lord. The spirit of Elijah is REAL. This work binds us, as spiritual siblings, to each other. This work allows us to see the eternal picture as little more clearly. It allows us to help so many have the opportunity of salvation. How beautiful?

I loooooooove the Easter season! Jesus Christ lives! He is risen. And #becausehelives, one day, we will too.

"I can live with some human imperfections, even among prophets of God—that is to be expected in mortal beings. can live with some alleged scientific findings contrary to the Book of Mormon; time will correct those. And can live with some seeming historical anomalies; they are minor in the total landscape of truth. But cannot live without the doctrinal truths and ordinances restored by Joseph Smith, cannot live without the priesthood of God to bless my family, and cannot live without knowing my wife and children are sealed to me for eternity. That  is the choice we face-- a few unanswered questions on one hand versus host of doctrinal certainties and the power of God on the other."
-Tad R. Callister
I know this is true. Have a happy Easter, everyone!
