Can I just say that every time I have talked to my family recently I couldn't be more proud of each one of them. WOW. It is amazing how the Lord blesses families and individuals. Things are tough, don't get me wrong, financial problems are striking EVERY member of the family VERY strongly and there are a lot of little people that can be affected! But when the struggles come is when the testimonies grow the strongest and the effects of tender mercies are felt more than ever! Trials are such blessings. It is amazing to see everyone pull together, unite, and come unto Christ. The Gospel of Christ is so unifying and so much for the family.
DC has truly taught me the importance of family and family relationships. What a difference it makes to have that love, support, and prayers. My siblings are just great examples of faith, patience, perseverance, love, and support. It is really neat to watch each one grow individually and with their family. People don't realize how much they miss out on if they don't have this, if they don't have the GOspel.
I thank the Lord for the great faith and strength my family shows in God, His plan, and His Gospel. I am more proud of them each day. What a great thing. I am grateful to the Lord for the family He has given me, for the trials and tribulations He has given us, and for His Gospel that leads and guides us to happiness.
