At 10:30pm we heard Iddo crying in her room and when we went to go check on her she met us half-way in the hall covered in blood and dripping more. I led her into the bathroom, sat her down in my lap, held some kleenex at her nose and started washing her off with baby wipes and singing to her to help her calm down while Brett wiped up the drips on the tile floor and checked out the damage to her bed. … I am grateful Heavenly Father gives me feelings and impressions so I can take advantage of these moments to talk with our kids whenever they happen to come up.

And even more, we can act as proxy for our ancestors who have died and give them the chance to make those same covenants. How great is the love of our Heavenly Father that he does not deny anyone the opportunity for exaltation! Keep reading
If I were to die right now it would really suck for my family. But I have faith in the grace of God. I’m doing my best to iron out my wrinkles and I’m striving to keep the covenants I’ve made with God. I’d be okay on the other side. Keep reading
