I will Follow Him

The most enjoyable thing for me is watching my children play and listen to their conversation. They are just so delightful and full of life! The other day, I took my children to the park. There, I had a wonderful opportunity to watch them play together. I called it a "wonderful opportunity" for you will not witness moments like this forever. They grow up so fast and that one day they will leave your home. So take serious advantage of the time you have your kids. We do not own them. They were entrusted to us to care, nourish, teach and help them become good children of our Heavenly Father.

The Lord's work is "To bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of men" -Moses 1:39. The Lord Jesus Christ on His visit to the Nephites declared, "Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect" -3 Nephi 12:48. I believe this is our ultimate goal. All of us who chose Heavenly Father's "Plan of Salvation" in the Pre-existence have the same goal. We needed a "world" to carry on the steps of becoming "perfect". Keeping our first estate (being spirit children of the Father) allowed us to be born on the earth through our mortal parents. Now, we obtained our "physical body" and have the opportunity to exercise our "free agency". Hopefully, we use this special gift wisely. 

Heavenly Father loves all of His children. Just like in the olden times, He also called prophets that have the Priesthood or the authority to act in God's name, to guide and teach us the gospel of Jesus Christ in this modern time. "Thereby showing that He is the same God yesterday, today and forever. Amen."- Doctrine and Covenants 20:12.

Becoming like Heavenly Father requires great faith in His Plan and that through the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus Christ it made possible for us to progress infinitely.
