None Were With Him...

To Christians around the world, we celebrate together - the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ - as the author and finisher of our faith! The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued a statement to the world, of our united hope in this -THE Greatest of all events in world history; and which resulted in what we now celebrate as EASTER!

How truly grateful each one of us are, that through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we shall all LIVE again - beyond the grave. Mormonism teaches the very reason for such a gift - and that is, that FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!

We believe that the family is eternal. We believe that our families can be together for eternity - through the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that this world was created solely for the progress of man - and that through our individual earthly experiences, we can grow to become more like Jesus Christ.

As I reflect on my own life, and the challenges and trials that I have experienced in particular, as a wife and mother - I can more clearly see that these truly are the ways through which I come to better understand, what it means to be a Christian.

Here is wishing each one of you a glorious Easter, in rememberance of what Jesus Christ has made possible for all of mankind!

LDS First Presidency Easter Message....


The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following Easter message this weekend:

"At this Easter season as we contemplate our own mortality and remember loved ones who have passed from this life, our hearts turn to Him who promised: “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.

"Jesus Christ is the literal Savior of the world, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the Holy One of Israel, even the risen Lord, who declared: “Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world…I am the light and the life of the world.”  “I am the first and the last; I am he who liveth, I am he who was slain; I am your advocate with the Father.

"This Easter season, as His witnesses, we testify that He lives and that through Him, we too shall live."

The First Presidency of the Church currently constitutes - President Thomas S. Monson and his counselors, President Henry B. Eyring and President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

Jesus Christ is central to Mormon beliefs and doctrine. Talks given at the Church’s recent worldwide general conference included doctrinal discourses on Jesus Christ.

Below you will find a video summary of a sermon given by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, which focuses the attention of “those who are alone or feel alone or, worse yet, feel abandoned” to the life of Jesus Christ.
