Hey yall! 

Last Sunday i received a priesthood blessing of comfort and counsel, it was perfect! I know my father in heaven and i recognize the way he speaks to me. I simply LOVE the priesthood because no matter who i receive a priesthood blessing from i always get the same tone and words from my father above! 
We were able to really listen to the promptings of the spirit and that was really incredible. It was nothing super huge but it was small promptings that led us right where we needed to be. for example: giving the pizza guy a pass along car and come to find out he played bball at the church way back when. SMILE MORE. Pray for your mom ( on Saturday). Go visit so & so...exactly what they needed. read chapter 24 of alma. 

I testify that the Holy Ghost is how we can draw closer to the savior and become more like him. His role is to bare witness of the Father and the Son, to bring things to our remembrance and teach us all things! I testify that as we qualify more fully for the spirit we will be able to recognize where we lack, where we can be try harder and things we can add into our life. I think of the anti nephi lehies in Alma 24 when the lord helped them recognize their sins by allowing them to feel of the spirit to bring it to their attention and when they did it resulted in a phenomenal way! The spirit helped them recognize that they could change, thats the power that comes from believing in the savior! I testify that this is a perfect example of what can happen in our lives if we have desire and listen to the spirits promptings! 
And this they did, it being in their view testimony to God, and also to men, that they never would use weapons again for the shedding of man’s blood and this they did,vouching and covenanting with God, that rather than shed the blood of their brethren they would give up their own lives; and rathethan take away from brothethey would give unto him; anrather than spend their days in idleness they would labor abundantly with their hands." (vs 18)

It has been incredibly hot lately and i just really hate it, but i love the lord so i manage. please keep my companion, Dallas and ensign ward and the sweet people of Georgia in your prayers! (:
