Hello Dear Friends!
I am so happy to share today's reading with you all! I LOOOVE the story of King Lamoni and also of Abish. There is just so much to cover today but I will just focus on my favorite scriptures and stories. I encourage you to pray and ponder during today's readings. The theme of the last week has been that anyone can change. Today's reading is also an example of that. It strengthens me to see what a huge transformation King Lamoni, his wife, servants, and people in his kingdom had. The gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of God can do miracles. In times of old as well as in our times.
I found this WONDERFUL explanation of the last few chapters on lds.org. I know it is long but I feel that it will help us understand what happened during King Lamoni's conversion.
I wanted to share that video with you because I believe we can all be like King Lamoni and have our own personal conversions. We just need to ask our Heavenly Father to know for ourselves. I hope you are all feeling a sweet peace as you are reading from the Book of Mormon. I pray daily that you feel a special feeling in your heart that touches your soul. I not only love this book but I also know with every fiber of my being that it changes lives. I have seen it happen and it has also changed my life forever. I will share my story with you all very soon. It is one of sadness as well as hope that came through the Plan of Salvation and the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
"And it came to pass that after he had said all these things, and expounded them to the king, that the king believed all his words."
There are many more things I would love to share today but I have to go get my kids from school. I cannot wait for you to read today's chapters! Two great examples of women of faith! Abish and the Queen of the Lamanites.
I want to close with this video on Mothers. I have to admit that this video comes close to my heart as I have felt the way this mother has almost every day. What a sweet assurance this gives me.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
