soap box

Last month's first presidency message hasn't left my mind since I read it.  Especially this part where President Eyring says, "at some moment in the world to come, everyone you met in this life will know what you know now. They will know that the only way to live forever in association with our families and in the presence of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, is to choose to enter into the gate by baptism at the hands of those with authority from God. They will know that the only way families can be together forever is to accept and keep sacred covenants offered in the temples of God on this earth. They will know that you knew. And they will remember whether you offered them what someone had offered you."  

To anyone reading this who hasn't already heard, if I have not told you about this, it's because I've been scared to be pushy, or annoying, or offensive.  But I do know, and I would love to share.  I'd love to have you come to church with my family.  I'd love to share with you what brings me the most joy in my life.   Please ask, and I'll share.

For some reason being good missionaries is the hardest thing to do, mostly because of fear!
I'm glad that you have the courage to say what you feel and want to share what you know to be true!
That talk is rather powerful and I can see why it's stuck with you. It's one of those that makes you think, and feel bad if you're not doing all you can.
Thank you!!
