Tonight Nathan had a date night with the children while I went through a temple session, and in the morning he will go while I get the children fed and dressed.
We are so grateful for time here, for the promises here, for revelation here.
We are grateful for the restored priesthood, for temples on the earth again, and for the sealing powers that gather and heal and bind our families together in love and peace and goodness.
I am grateful for progression, for specific assignments that teach me specific things, and for the power that comes from choosing the good – even within the painful and heavy burden of mortality and all its weakness.
I am grateful for the atonement of the Savior, who kept His promises and teaches me to keep mine. I am grateful for His prayers, His advocacy, and His sacrifice by which I may boldly approach my Father covered in mercy and grace.
I am grateful for the prophet Joseph Smith, and for the Book of Mormon, and for our prophet today – even President Thomas S Monson.
I know Heavenly Father really knows us, and that He loves us, and that He is mindful of us.
I know the Savior lives.
I know the Spirit corrects me, and guides me, and comforts me.
I know this is a place of peace, and nourishment, and power.
