Hey Everyone! Another new week from the Tip top of Potosi!
This week we had a baptism! Estefani is an amazing daughter of God that took that important decision of changing her life and truly put her life in the hand of God by making a promise with Him. THAT is baptism -- a promise with Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ to trust and confide in them and always remember Him -- a promise to continue on faithful and ,true until the end. Estefani has been through so many challenges and trials in her life and especially when she decided that she would be baptized, but she has recognized that her life is so much fuller and happier when she is following the gospel even if she does have problems and hard times! She has put her will in the Hands of God and I know that she will receive so many blessings from it!
EASTER! I hope that you all enjoyed your Easter! I just absolutely love this time of year! It is amazing to me to remember Christ. Every day is an amazing day to remember Christ!
Here are some GREAT quotes that I love about the atonement:
- “There is no greater expression of love than the heroic atonement performed by the Son of God.” –Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
- “The irony of the Atonement is that it is infinite and eternal, yet it is applied individually, one person at a time.” –Elder M.Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
- “… if … you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!” --D&C 18:15 ; )
The Atonement is SO important in our lives! It is the only thing that opens the door for us so that we can return to the presence of our Heavenly Father and live with Him again, enjoying true and everlasting joy with Him and all of our family. I know that we are not perfect in our lives. We are never perfect, but we have a loving Heavenly Father and older Brother who said that they would help us and save us so that we could be an eternal family again. I am so grateful for my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ who loves me and who gave His all for me and all of us. The best way that we can show our appreciation for this gift is by using it. Use the Atonement! It changes lives, attitudes and truly helps us to become more heavenly in this life -- more like Christ himself.
Love you all! Have a great week!
