May 26, 2014

Dear Family,
This week is the most rewarding yet stressful week of my entire life. We had two baptisms for two different people!
These people we found and taught and were able to see their whole progression as they came closer to the Lord Jesus Christ and were able to see the light shine brighter in there eyes and watch their eyes radiating with the love of Christ after their baptisms and confirmations. It was an amazing thing.
Eternal progression takes work and stress, but it is amazing there are no shortcuts. Our potential is so much bigger than we can comprehend but the only way to recieve this potential is through God and the atonement. We have to reach higher heights and fly to the edge where we will fall if God does not save us. We often put ourselves down because of dumb things we do and say. The thing is  we all do dumb things. If we were to look at our true heroes the only difference between us and them is they used the cleansing healing atonement of Jesus Christ and became better. Christ is change. Through Christ we can change we can stop being dumb and become like our hero Christ himself.  
In the words of Paul

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

   side note: we worship  other gods  when we are more occupied with what others think instead of focusing on what God thinks.
have a great week,
søster shaw
