It was small, but woof my pride....haha studied humility the next day, dont worry!
The Book of Mormon is soo incredible, This past week the chapter that i thought was the greatest was Ether 12. If you have a minute check it out. Verse 41, is what gets me the most, especially during this christmas season. After all the examples of faith and miracles, he tells us, to do all we can to invite Chirst into our lives, and to have faith in him. Thats my invitation today, to invite him in. If its through Repentence, forgiviness, patiance, charity, or just having more hope day to day! }
I love you all, thank you for all the prayers and your examples to me.
Have a great week.
Les Amo Elder Marshall
