Ever wondered if God still talked to man?
Well, on April 5th and 6th, at 10am MDT, you can listen to his Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and the General Authorities that preside in his church.
This event is called General Conference, and it happens twice a year.
As you listen to them, you will realize that they are servants of Jesus Christ. Your testimony of our Lord and Savior will deepen and you will feel God’s love in your life.
Are you ready to listen?
Fern attended high school in a small town. She was one of those nice but unnoticed girls who don’t become much but a face on a yearbook page and a name on the rolls. Her family was poor, and they lived out of town. She was not part of the “in crowd,” and the only time her name came up in a conversation of other students was in that mocking, sarcastic way that seems funny when you are young, insecure, and need to ridicule someone else to take the pressure off yourself. Her name became synonymous with anything dumb or out of style. If a thing was unacceptable or ridiculous, the students called it “Ferny.”
Young people can be so cruel.
It was an annual tradition in the school to recognize the student who showed the most school spirit and support for the athletic teams. When the assembly came to honor that student, as expected, they called out the name of one of the more popular girls in the school. She bounced up the aisle smiling and waving to all her friends. But then a miracle happened. As she took the stage, she said, “I can’t accept this award. Yes, I have loved the teams and cheered for them at every game. But Fern has come to every game, too. I came in a nice, warm car surrounded by my happy friends. She came alone and walked all the way—two and a half miles—sometimes in the rain or snow. She had to sit by herself, but I don’t know anyone who cheered with as much spirit as Fern. I would like to nominate her for the most enthusiastic student in the school.”
Fern was escorted to the stage to a spontaneous standing ovation from her fellow students.
Youth can be so kind.

Doctrine and Covenants 84:88
And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.
This is a scripture has helped me a TON on my mission so far. I can truly testify that you as well as I, are watched over each and every day of our lives, and we need not fear when we have faith in one greater than us.
If you ever feel like you are alone and are lost, know that you can pray at all times, and in all places to one who loves you and cares for you. Because he is your literal spiritual father.

This is a amazingly remarkable experience of man who relied on the Atonement.
I am glad of the Plan of Salvation that our Heavenly Father has given us. That I have the knowledge to know that I can live with my family forever in happiness. And all I have to do is follow his commandments. What a simple thing to do for such everlasting happiness.
