I'm going to do something I promised I'd never do. I promised myself years ago that I would never blog about religion or politics so that I wouldn't offend anyone, but I am so tired of hiding behind trying to be politically correct. This blog is about our lives, and in the process of writing about our lives I've been leaving a big, gaping hole where our religion fits in.
Today we had the opportunity to see the most wonderful things. My nephew Wyatt was able to be blessed by his Grandfather, and his brother (my other nephew) CJ and my sister in law, Amanda were both able to be baptized. I just love going to religious events, they strengthen my testimony so much.
It may not be shocking to you that a little family from Utah is LDS. We are far from a traditional LDS family; Bubba and I met when we were both inactive, we were married by an LDS Bishop and are working our way to our temple marriage. Our faith in our belief is true, because we've both lived outside the faith and the principles of the gospel and have been able to come to realize on our own terms the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I know that my Redeemer lives and that he loves all of us very much. I know that he died for our sins, and to this day, I still cannot even fathom what that may have been like. I know that he knows us, he knows our grief, he knows our pain, and he knows the real us.
I'd like to take a moment to invite you to have a "Sunday Moment," by either sharing YOUR testimony of the Savior below (any religion, anybody, nothing negative or hurtful because you WILL be deleted and blocked if you're nasty), to check out my Pinterest Board, full of lots of great quotes, images and ideas, and to check out the LDS Church's website.
