Have you ever felt guilty? Like you just needed to apologize or repent?

"32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." -Luke 5:32

I know I have in my life. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes and have regrets. Christ's Atonement allows us to repent from all our sins, helping us become clean so we can learn from them and grow instead of be punished and tormented from our mishaps.

Message us to learn more about how you can use repentance in your life.

Before this life we now know, we lived with God.

Heaven was our home.

We came as strangers in this world.

A place of testing, hardship, and pain.
But God made a place where we could find rest.

A place like home.

A place our spirits know.

The temple stands as the house of God.

There we can find rest, hope and light.

Until we can make it back home.

What helps you feel close to your heavenly home?

Just like how the fall leaves change, Jesus Christ can change us🍁🍂🌱

Alma 19:33

"And it came to pass that when Ammon arose he also administered unto them, and also did all the servants of Lamoni; and they did all declare unto the people the selfsame thing—that their hearts had been changed; that they had no more desire to do evil."

How has Jesus Christ changed you??

Song: He Knows Me Better by Russ Dixon

10/16/2021

“'Do not fear, for I the Lord am with you.'

You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you.

Heavenly Father’s interest in you does not depend on how rich or beautiful or healthy or smart you are. He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you because you are His child.

...seek Him earnestly, and you will find Him.

I promise you, you are not alone."

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf

•••How do you trust Christ enough to fear not?•••

LOOKING FOR PEACE?

When we partake of the Sacrament, we invite the Power of Christ's Atonement into our life. The Power of Christ's Atonement heals our wounds and let's us move past our mistakes and have peace

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Where do you find peace?

If you could ask Christ one thing, what would it be?

James chapter 1 verse 5
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

We know we can ask God anything through prayer and receive an answer!

The 7th Day is for 2nd Chances

When God created the Earth, He rested on the 7th day. He has given us the Sabbath day and commands us "to keep it holy" (Exodus 20:8).

Recreational activities, shopping, athletic events or any other common day activities should be avoided.

Instead, study the scriptures, go to church (come worship with us!), spend time with family, and serve.

When we keep the Sabbath day holy, God promises us joy, peace, a new perspective and a renewed spirit.

What do you like to do on Sunday?
