The Future is as Bright as your Faith
I thought that I would explain about the picture on the top of the blog. Last year Elder Schenk sent home some pictures of his mission. One of the pictures captured my heart. It was the picture of him and his companion, Elder Rocha walking 2 hours through the mountains of Guaratingueta to teach a family. I decided to have this picture enlarged and give it to Steven for Father's Day. How trilled Steven was and how beautiful it looked on our wall. I decided I wanted a inspirational quote or saying to go above the picture that would give meaning to our whole family. As the next month went by I pondered on what it should say. Some of my ideas were, "Have I done any good in the world today", or "Faith in every footstep". Then in one of Elder Schenk's emails he used the quote " The future is as bright as your faith". That was it! That was what needed to hang above this picture. I never knew that it would have so much meaning to our family down the road. Thank you Pres. Monson for these encouraging words that has inspired our family the past year, but especially the past 2 weeks. "Fear not, Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your Faith". As we have listened to General Conference, we listened to it in a different way. With a contrite heart, we humbly listened how we can improve our lives and become closer to our Savior Jesus Christ.
