Happy Easter!
I just want to express how grateful I am for the knowledge I have of a Savior who died for me. And not just for me but for my kids and Lorin. I guess when I became a mom the atonement started to mean so much more to me.; for the times I felt helpless as a mom and unable to help my kids as they were in pain, sick or sad. I don't know how our Heavenly Father watches over us and sees all the mistakes we make. And I don't know how He was able to watch his only son who was perfect, without a mistake, suffer, bleed and die- for each of us. I know Christ rose again! I know we can return and live with our Heavenly Father again because of that sacrifice.
Today as I watched conference I was reminded of what really matters in life. So many of the talks were to parents...mothers! I felt so inadequate and overwhelmed with the load I carry of five little kids. Most days I feel good just to take care of their physical needs, let alone to build their testimonies and establish a foundation in which they have to face such a wicked world. But then I felt strength from the talks which reminded me to build my faith. God truly is our strength and we won't be able to do it if we don't lean on the Lord.
He Lives I know with all my heart.

I loved the spontanious testimony sharing advice. I sometimes feel overwhelmed when I think of all the things I wish I was doing better, but when I heard that I thought "I can do that"!! Simple, yet priceless.

Thank you for being who you are. You have always been very close to the spirit. Even as a little girl you have known how to recognize good from evil and know what the Holy Ghost is.
Thank you for being steadfast.For being righteous and keeping the faith in a hard and ferocious world.

I love you so much and am thankful to be your Dad.
