Sabbath Day Light: I love God and His children. That includes you.

There are so many things I could write about today. The Spirit at church was so strong and thick, you could swim in it.

Sabbath Day Light: Forgiveness

I love going to church each Sunday. LDS people attend church for three hours, and in those three hours, go to three different meetings. In each, we are spiritually nourished. Yesterday, I left church with an abundance of the Spirit in my heart. In our first meeting of the day, Sacrament Meeting, a brother in…
