My husbands family is going through a crazy terrible time right now. It really is so out of this world that makes ordinary sins seem like a swift in the wind. Lots of tears have been shed, prayers pleaded, hours of worry, etc. Things seem to just get worse for a person in his family because of their choices. Its amazing how Oliver's family has handled this situation. Instead of disgust, anger, shunning, etc... they have come together and will not let this rip their family apart. Oliver's Mother sent all of us a quote that I thought showed how the power of the atonement can cause peace in the worst of turmoil...
"The atonement of Jesus Christ has the power to bring every person who has ever lived back to their heavenly home, regardless of how
they have lived--if they will come unto Christ with full purpose of heart.
There is no sin that cannot be forgiven, no wound that cannot be healed, no behavior that cannot change."
How can a mother who has been through what she has feel this way???.... totally willing to look past what has happened and believe in forgiveness, healing, and change.... with a heart ready to love.
Jenna sometimes we get buried and feel like we can not get out.... but the load is what makes us stronger and you are definitely living proof! I love you a lot! Keep fighting!!

This makes my trial seem like a grain of sand in the entire ocean... this is another video I do not have to say anything... it says it all. And I know after you watch this you know exactly how I am feeling. I am grateful for messages like this, that can touch our hearts so deeply, turn our fear into hope, and our doubt into faith! I am so grateful for the Savior and I know that every trial will be but a small moment.

Listening to this song called Baptism I thought how incredible it is that through baptism we can become fresh and clean... "new" just like this perfect little leaf. I also thought of the Atonement of Christ... we all make mistakes... some big and some small but non the less we need to become clean again... and also like this new leaf every Spring it comes out just as beautiful and just as clean.. So can we through the incredible love that our Savior had and has for each of us imperfect people! We just have to have the courage to do it! I am so grateful that each week I can start over by taking the sacrament and I can try again. I am so grateful that you are a person that never gives up on them self. I love you so much!
