Beautiful Beliefs

  I have some beautiful beliefs.  They concern the tender mercies of a loving Heavenly Father and the love, example and the grace of His Son, Jesus Christ.  Through the years, through myself or close loved ones, I have encountered depression, divorce, death, addictions, anxiety and other weighty matters.  Yet over and over two beautiful beliefs have supported me and sustained me through times of trial.  
The first belief is in the scripture from John 14: 18 and 27: "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you....Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  We are given peace from The Savior - that peace can be found even in times of anguish and despair.  I have felt that peace again and again.  
The other belief that has sustained me is kind of two-fold but all makes sense as one concept.  I am a spirit daughter of a loving Heavenly Father and He loves me.  He wants me to live with him again and sent His Son to atone for my sins so that I could live with them both again.  And because I am a spirit daughter, so is my own mother; my husband is a spirit son and my children are His also.  He wants us all to be with Him again; and because of that I have the opportunity to live with my family even after I pass away!  Isn't that a beautiful belief?  
Only....I have asked in prayer if it is really a true belief....and through scripture study and much prayer and even some fasting, I now know, that when I strive to do what is right, I will truly be able to be with my loved ones!  I know it!  
I wish everyone could feel of the Savior's peace; that they too could know that God loves us and that we have the opportunity to be with our very own families forever and ever.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I have some beautiful beliefs.

We are excited to team up with over 65+ of us strong... to extend an invitation to see a film. A film entitled "Meet The Mormons".

We hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this film. We hope your hearts are made light as you feel the goodness that comes from following our Christ and Savior. All proceeds from the film will be donated to The American Red Cross. So not only will you be uplifted and inspired, your money will be going to an amazing charity!!

The light of the gospel of Jesus Christ offers a joy and hope that only following him can provide.

It takes great bravery for us to open our hearts and our mouths to share with you such a tender and personal part of who we are. We share because we feel strongly the need to share the peace and the hope that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
