Happy Easter

He Lives
Last Sunday we had an elderly lady come and hand us a card. The front was a beautiful design and on the back were the simple words "He Lives!" As I stared at the card I was touched deeply by her simple but profound testimony.  She wanted to let others know she had a testimony that Jesus Christ was resurrected and during this Easter time we get to celebrate him and that we are victorious because Jesus Christ made it possible. It made me think about how I want others to know that I know that He Lives. That because of His sacrifice, His perfect life and His atonement we can live forever and be resurrected again. I know that we can be forgiven of sins and that we can turn to him whenever we have sorrows, joys or trails, because he experienced it all. I know that God loves you. He knows you. He created you.

I know that for those who might not have that knowledge or testimony yet, what I just wrote can be a lot to understand or take in. But I encourage you to think more about the Savior, who He is and what He did. Brandon was able to be apart of the #becausehelives campaign and the widget on the left column explains more about what we believe about Jesus Christ. Click on it and relish on the thoughts and feelings you get as you watch the video.

"Today we celebrate the gift of victory over every fall we've ever experienced, every sorrow we've ever known, every discouragement we've ever had, and every fear we've ever faced, to say nothing of resurrection from death and forgiveness for our sins" -Elder Holland
