About three weeks ago I received some terrible, heartbreaking news. One of the mothers of a friend of my youngest son had passed away after losing her battle to cancer. Her funeral was held on the following Friday, and naturally my son and I attended the service to offer support to his friend and his two older sisters. During the service my heart broke for those three children sitting there. As a mother, I couldn’t even begin to comprehend what it must be like to know you are going to die, and you need to say goodbye to your own flesh and blood. I saw her oldest daughter of eleven get up, and with such elegance and grace give a heartfelt eulogy of the mother she had lost. She spoke of the fond memories they made, the great love they shared, the great example she was, and how these precious children miss her beyond what they can even fe...

After receiving my own strong testimony of the book, I committed to reading it each year, and up to this date, have been strict in following up with that promise to myself. Last Wednesday, on the 20th of September 2017 I read the final verse in Moroni 10 , and once again was overcome with the overwhelming feeling of the truthfulness of this book. This past nine months have been months of many ups and a few downs, and also a few changes. I have had to push myself to smile through the harder days, to try to figure out the lessons and growth...
