I love this quote about scripture study by L. Tom Perry, and I wanted to share it with you:
“Personal, sincere involvement in the scriptures produces faith, hope, and solutions to our daily challenges. Frequently reading, pondering, and applying the lessons of the scriptures, combined with prayer, become an irreplaceable part of gaining and sustaining a strong, vibrant testimony.”
I have felt this in my life and know it to be true.

We have been told what is moral and what is not. Listen to these words of the prophet if you doubt:
Whose side are you on? The Lord’s or Satan’s?
Each of us can have a mighty change in our lives as we hold true to the gospel of Jesus Christ and as we have a desire to change. As our hearts change, we can change. What do you need or want to change in your life?
Our Heavenly Father knows you personally. I know that He knows me personally. I have felt His love in my life. It has strengthened me in times where I have thought I could go no further, at times when I have felt so alone and abandoned. He never abandons us. He loves us so very much. He is there. He knows. Pray to Him. Ask Him to help you. He will help. He will help. He loves you.

I wanted to share this video of the testimony of Jenny Oaks Baker.
I love this video by President Uchtdorf. His testimony truly does give us a clearer view:

As I was studying in John this morning I was struck by the importance of us abiding in the Lord and He in us.
It says in John 15:1-7:
“1 I am the true a, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every a in me that beareth not b he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he c it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 a in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the a, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without b ye can do nothing.
6 If a man a not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye a in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall bwhat ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Without the Lord, we can do nothing. With the Lord we are able to do all things. We die when we do not abide in the Lord and when we do not allow Him to abide in us. How important it is for us to remember to abide (to remain, continue, stay) in the Lord. He truly is our lifeline. Without Him as the true vine, we wither and die and are cast out. If we are not connected to the true vine, we cannot live.
