Where I turn for peace


{On our latest fall color ride up Midway, Utah}

Since trials are part of our existence, we might as well
figure out how to deal with them as soon as possible.
Of course they are not easy, nor will they ever be.
But if I have learned (and learning) anything it is:

1. Never be ashamed of my faith, who I am, and what I can share. I can't deny that my faith in Jesus Christ has saved my life, blessed my family,
and carried me through my struggles along the way.
You wont find me hiding that from anyone-I don't care if you believe in God or not.

2. Own the trial. We each come with our own personal trials. God trusts us with them, he knows us and knows what we are capable of. He hopes we can learn and teach others from our own experience. It's hard enough going through it, but what if we went through the trail{s} with an attitude that "this too shall pass"? Everyone struggles, God has faith in me, I have faith in myself and I can do this. What a difference your struggle could be.

3. Read the Book of Mormon. You don't have to be a Mormon to read this book.
The principles taught inside the inspired words will give hope, meaning to life and happiness that can only be felt through Jesus Christ.
I am so relieved and blessed to understand that through these trials and struggles that if I pray to my Father in Heaven in the name of Jesus Christ, my family will be blessed and strengthened. (3 Nephi 18:21)
If you want to read this inspired book I will send you one free, no strings attached. Promise.
{ for more information, go here} I want you to find out for yourself the truth and beauty in these words. The faith I gather in hard times can only come through Christ's tender
words found through The Book of Mormon.
God still speaks to us today. I promise.

I dont write this post because I have in anyway mastered these, in fact I still struggle, but I have the tools to figure them out and face them though and I am so grateful.


PS...here is the link to 'The Religious Test' film I mentioned earlier.
