I hope you are able to check out this years Easter video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Take time to #HearHim.
I love this time of year! I love celebrating Easter! It is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For me, I feel like it’s a time to strive to be better. To feel the His love more in my life, to #HearHim.
Spring is a time for growth and renewal and I love that the season and Easter holiday are similar in meaning to me.
My favorite story in The Book of Mormon is in 3 Nephi chapter 17. Jesus Christ was resurrected and visited the Nephites. When he was visiting He shared His gospel and the truthfulness of it. What stood out to me in the scriptures was the love and compassion He had for the people, especially the children.
3 Nephi 17:21
“And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took the children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.
This verse is powerful to me. We are all children of Heavenly Father. He desires us to follow His son, Jesus Christ and come back into their presence.
This season is a great time to reflect, repent, and renew. I love how symbolic this season is to me. I love what I celebrate and the brightness that this season brings to my heart.
How do you celebrate this time of year?
