Precious Gifts

I don't think I will ever in this life really recognize or appreciate the value of these Precious books. We are so blessed and fortunately to have the scriptures. They have helped me in so many ways and in so many situations of my life. They were written to help us in these latter days. The principles and teachings are to help guide us through this life. In the Bible-the new testament to be more specific, is all about the life of our loving Saviour Jesus Christ. We read about his life, his example, his ultimate sacrifice-the atonement, and his miraculous ressurection. The Book of Mormon is Christs visit and dealings with the ancient people in the Americas and is another testament of him. We also have the Doctrine and Covenants which are writings from the beloved Prophet of these latter days-Joseph Smith who restored the gospel and christs original church. These books are precious and are such treasures. Their value is more than gold or of any worldy value. Please read these books. Read them with an open heart, thirst and hunger for the inspiration that comes from reading them and then apply what you have learned. I promise as you do so, your life will be blessed forever. They give us power and strength and we need that everyday to fight against the adversary.

Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I say unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold the words of Christ will tell you all things that ye should do -2 Nephi 32:3

.....for i did liken all scriptures unto us, that it might be for our profit and learning-1Nephi 19:23
