Last night, listening to @kchenoweth
sing “Angels from the Realms of Glory”, I was overcome with emotion thinking about what it must’ve been like to witness our Savior’s birth from heaven — waiting, watching, and rejoicing, being overcome with joy, hope, and happiness when the glorious moment finally arrived. The birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, means everything. Without Him, we’d be nothing. So today, I just wanted to share my testimony of the Savior with you all. I love Him, and my belief in Him has helped me through some of my darkest times. I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who sent his beloved son to earth, so that I could find peace, love, and happiness in this life and the next. ❤️
It is Jesus Christ’s birthday that we celebrate each Christmas season, but because of the goodness of the Father and the Son, we still get all the presents. [Elder Duncan] 💛
When your family shows up early for church to support you. ❤️ Sam is being ordained today and Josh is giving his farewell talk. 😭 48 hours.
Encontro com a Sister “Kata” Ribera !!! Eu servi missão na Ala dela em 2006 e ela serve na Ala que eu cresci (Ponta da Praia) em 2018. Quem diria que cruzaria com ela dnv nesse serviço tão glorioso !! #ldschuch #ldsmissionary
✨ ANY RM’S OUT THERE?! 🎶 All the missionaries, all the missionaries, put your hands up! 🎵 😜 <> <> <> Some people have asked why I DID NOT go on a mission. Especially because of the age change, many more women CHOOSE to go! ☀️ <> <><>
Well, that’s just it. It’s a choice, and for me, choosing not to go seemed right. 👩🏼 I considered it, thought about it, and prayed for guidance, but it just wasn’t a calling for me. 🤷🏼♀️ While I may not serve a literal mission, I CAN still have a LIFE MISSION, SERVE those around me, and be a missionary of Christ no matter WHERE I am! 🤗 •
Speaking of missions, I got my hubby a @statesmanties
( it’s a tie of the California Flag) to represent the two years of his selfless service in his Long Beach, Cali mission! 👔 Shopping for guys is tricky (like, what do I get?!), so being able to get him something customized to represent a state that is special to him, is really meaningful! 😍
What are YOUR thoughts? Did YOU serve a mission? Why or why not? 🙌🏻 •
Also, shoutout to @madisonbraids
(tutorial coming to IGTV soon). 😘
Hi Group, Moroni wrote Ether 5, as a directive for the person, (Joseph Smith), who would one day be chosen by God to retrieve and translate the approved portion of Book of Mormon, (our current edition of the B of M). The sealed portion of the Jaredite record, (See Ether 4:5), was sealed up by Moroni, as per God’s command and will come forth one day. The records were only to be translated by one who was chosen by God, at His appointed time. V2-4 reveals that there would be "witnesses,” who would one day, by the power of God, see the plates of the Book of Mormon and testify of them. (V2 refers to the eight witnesses. V3-4 refer to the three witnesses; Oliver Cowdrey, David Witmer and Martin Harris). “And in the mouth of three witnesses shall these things be established; and the testimony.”(V4). The Book of Mormon would stand as a witness of truth “against the world,” along with the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, in the last days. (V4). Application today? To establish His word, God uses the law of witnesses which is: "in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." (See D&C 6:28. Deut. 17:6; Matt. 18:16; 2 Cor. 13:1; Ether 5:4; D&C 128:3.). In the latter days, the three witnesses of the sacred plates wrote, "we, through the grace of God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, have seen the plates which contain this record..." (See Testimony of Three Witnesses, B of M). Today, as you hold the Book of Mormon in your hands, and read it, sincerely pray for Holy Ghost to witness unto you, the divinity of its origin and truthfulness. I add my witness that the Book of Mormon is of divine origin and is true. I know this. Do you? With love, Dawna

Le comparto una historia de una persona que tenía un mayor propósito en mi vida que yo no pudiera ver hasta ahora mismo. Este hombre llamaré Orlando. El nos encontró a nosotros mientras estábamos sirviendo en la ciudad del Bronx. Un día, después de intentar de unirse a 12 diferentes iglesia durante su tiempo de estar en los Estados Unidos. (El es de Angola África. Hablaba portugués, shout out para todos de nuestros amigos que hablan portugués. 😉) Un día el estaba caminando en la calle y recibió una impresión del espíritu, "Dobla a la izquierda." El decidió doblar y seguir las impresiones. Luego recibió otro, "Dobla a la izquierda." Después de doblar a la izquierda, recibió otra impresión del espíritu. "Mira a la izquierda." Cuando el dio la mirada hacia la izquierda, el vio una foto de Jesucristo en la ventana del aquel edificio. Después de verlo y No entender las palabras bajo de la foto, el recibió otra impresión, "Abre la puerta, entre el edificio." El obedeció la voz y se sentó en la sofá dentro del aquel edificio. Después de algunos minutos, dos misioneros salieron del gimnasio de aquel edifico y le hablaron, "Perdón, Señor, cómo le podríamos ayudar?" Orlando les dijo, "Una voz me guió hasta este edificio. No sé por qué, pero sé que debo estar aquí." Los dos misioneros fueron asignados al idioma inglés. Después de preguntarle a Orlando de donde es, les dio cuenta que hablaba portugués. Uno de los dos misioneros fue reasignado de Brasil para Nueva York. El le habló en portugués y recibieron la información de Orlando. Después de algunos días, nos presentamos en persona mi compañero, Orlando, y yo. Después de solo algunas semanas, se bautizó Orlando. Testifico de que vamos a la iglesia No para esconder nuestros pecados, pero para sanarlos. Sé que Orlando fue guiado por el espíritu hacia la capilla del Señor. Sé que hay milagros en cada día de nuestras vidas. Testifico de estas cosas con mucho amor 💕, en el nombre de Jesucristo, Amén.
Light your family, light your community, light your faith, LIGHT THE WORLD ✨

First month as a Church Service Missionary has flown by and I am loving it! One year ago I never saw myself as a church service missionary but I know that with our natural eyes we cant always see what God has planned for us but when we trust Him we will recieve greater blessings than we could have ever imagined. I am loving my "companions", the seminary teachers, and I love testifying of truth to the youth in the Seminary! I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve!

👉🏻 This is a real TESTIMONY to me that God gave us social media to share the gospel, i was able to get to know him, help him and he is an excellent and strong person! 🔥 @ldschurch
Este es mi amigo Thomas de Sheffield Inglaterra! El me escribió a través de instagram para contactar a los misioneros en su ciudad. El es un milagro y HOY fue bautizado!!
Esto es un testimonio para mi que Dios nos dio las redes sociales para compartir el evangelio! :’)
I really enjoyed serving in parts of Calgary that are more run down... This is because I feel that I can connect with them better. This is because my family struggled financially in the past and I didn't have a lot of things as a child. However, I did have everything that I needed to live. Serving made me realize how tough people have to deal with in terms of struggles with addiction. The spiritual experiences that I've had talking to the people filled my heart with a love for them and want me to help them make a change in their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to make those changes but we still our hardest to get them in the 12 Step Addiction Recover programs.
I really want the opportunity to serve in a place like Forest Lawn, it's easier to connect to those poor people. The church has a lot of things we can offer to those who are trying to recover from addiction. The closest I experienced was serving in certain areas of SE Calgary where the area was a bit more run down.
Being a minority, I've been judged before just because of the way I look. They expect certain things from you, and people judeged my family because of the influence of the Polynesian community in Utah. It's something I had to live with but it wasn't too bad. The gospel for me is super important. Regardless of skin color first and foremost. Growing up, I loved sports such as basketball or rugby but I was really big into break dancing. It's something I've done and continued to do so.
God loves us and his son Jesus Christ is the son of God. I've seen miracles and have come to know that this life is not the end. I've come to know the truthfulness of the restored gospel. I know that Joseph Smith restored the church. These things are all for our benefit and I'm so thankful that all these things are eternal.

“Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy.”
Gordon B. Hinckley
