Alex’s Talk

I wasn’t sure what faith was.

Dad says faith is believing something that is true but that I can’t see.

I can not see Jesus.

I know he’s real because Heavenly Father whispers to me in a still small voice.

If I made good choices all the time Jesus could visit our house, and I would be happy to see him.

For now, I need to have faith.

Faith helps me to follow Jesus and his prophets.

Faith helps me to make good choices, like being safe, being honest and being kind.

I know this Church is true, and I know that the scriptures are true.

I know that we can be a family together forever.

And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
