Oliver will Light the World

"To all who wish to understand who we are as members of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
I would like to offer a starting point defined by these three words:
We seek Christ."
 (Deiter F. Uchtdorf)
In our simple way to help #LightTheWorld this Christmas season,
I have asked my children to once again
 share their testimonies based on times they have personally
felt the Spirit in their lives.
At this time of year, I believe that sharing our light with
true charity is vital to 
feeling the Christmas spirit and sharing it with
all of our brothers and sisters around the world.

"I testify that the Church is true and that families can be together forever.
I know we have a true and living prophet on earth today, and he reveals
  God's words and work for us.  We are lucky to have twelve apostles!
 I know the gospel was taken off the earth when Christ died,
and Joseph Smith restored the true Church and the Priesthood.
 I testify that the Book of Mormon is a true book
and that God lives and loves us.
I testify that Jesus died on the cross and that
 He loves us and suffered for our sins-
For you and for me.
I know that Christ was resurrected, and if we keep the commandments
we will receive blessings.
 I know that one day we will see and live with God again.
 I know God is our Father in heaven.
 I know that Christmas is a special time of the year when we celebrate Christ.
 I know that we are all his children.
I testify to you that these things are true."

In 25 ways, Over 25 days.
Once again, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ by serving
others this Christmas season.  As we follow His example,
we can help Light the World!
Day 6:
"Judge not that ye be not judged."
-Matthew 7:1
