I’d like to take a moment now at the beginning of the year to share with you my testimony of Jesus Christ.
I know that God lives. He loves me and He loves you. He loves us so much that He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to earth. He came not because He had to, but because He wanted to. Christ wanted to come, to save us from our sins. Because of the atonement of Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven of my sins. All I have to do is ask Him. He does require us to do as He says, but He also knows that we will mess up. As long as I keep trying, He will forgive me and allow me back into His presence. I know that because of His atonement, all mankind will be resurrected. I am among the weakest of His servants, but I so proud that He has trusted me enough to allow me to hold His priesthood, so that I can be His servant and exercise His priesthood power. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful and beautiful wife. By following the Lord’s commandments, I know that I will be able to be with my dear Amanda for all eternity. I am so happy, yet humbled that He intrusted me with my 3 beautiful children, for before they were my children, they were God’s and I know that He has not given up His parenteral rights to them. I strive everyday to be a father worthy of these children and to strive to live up to His example.
These things I write in the Holy Name of He who saves all mankind, Jesus Christ, Amen.
