#LightTheWorld: Jesus Read the Scriptures, and So Can You

Scriptures provide comfort, peace, and guidance in a confusing world, for they teach us of Jesus Christ and his mission.  Jesus taught from the scriptures.



 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
Luke 4:16–18

Today's #LightTheWorld topic is: Jesus Read The Scriptures, and So Can You.  We are so fortunate to be able to have easy access to scriptures. We can find books in hotel rooms, libraries, and in our own homes.  We can watch Bible videos:




We can even carry scriptures on our phones.  I love to read my scriptures on my phone, because I can easily highlight verses I particularly like, and can bookmark pages I want to return to.  I have the Bible on my phone, and also The Book of Mormon.  The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ.  It does not replace the Bible, but serves as another witness of the divinity of Christ.  The Book of Mormon app is available for free.  If you'd like to download it, go to your app store and search for Book of Mormon. The app will look like the icon below:


The app is available in many different languages--including sign language!  

Daily scripture study is a habit that has brought great peace to my life.  Scriptures feed my spirit, just like food feeds my body.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
