Charity, the Journey of a Lifetime
Though many years had passed with a personal apostasy haunting her waking moments, she still knew that the church is true. She asked for a priesthood blessing, and has been able to go just over a week now without even a nicotine patch. This is truly a miracle. She has two grand-daughters who have not been baptised, who now will be. They are going to come to church, and this wonderful family will have the incredible power of the atonement in their lives.
But, she almost wanted to do it herself. When we offered the priesthood blessing, she turned it down. We taught her, and her grand-daughter about who Jesus Christ is, and when she felt the spirit, she felt the strength flood into her. So she asked for the priesthood blessing.
In this she showed great faith. As we work on having miracles of change in our lives, we too need to show great faith, in asking for these blessings from our gracious Heavenly Father.
