Final Thoughts

"I'm very, very grateful for the experiences I had and all the people I met. I've come home with an unshakable testimony of a loving Heavenly Father that has a plan for each of us, a Savior that allows us to change, and the reality of the power and gift of the Holy Ghost. I know that the Lord consecrates our efforts to the welfare of us and those we serve. My life has more direction than ever, and I know what it takes to find peace and purpose in life. I'll forever cherish and thank God for the two years I had to fully dedicate myself to the Lord's work."

Our Eternal Family

It's really only since I've come home from my mission that I feel like I understand the roll of families. But as I stood and bore testimony in the Plano chapel where mom received her testimony and investigated the church, I felt the Spirit bear witness to me as powerfully as He ever has that our family will be together forever if we're faithful. I know our family was ordained and prepared by God, and that each of us are a part of it for a special purpose.
