I am still under the weather today. Boo Hoo! I even missed church which I rarely do. My husband had to attend another church an hour away but I was still able to get my kids to church on time. I just came home and tried to get some rest.
Today we are finishing Alma and starting the book of Helaman. I learned so much from the book of Alma. So much to be learned from the wars between the Nephites and the Lamanites.
In the last chapter of Alma we see that Helaman passes on the records to his brother Shiblon before he dies. Then Shiblon passes on the records to Helaman who is the son of Helaman.
Introduction to HelamanHere are some great quotes from lds.org regarding Helaman…
I know that when there is contention in my house, I do not feel the Spirit present. To be honest, I had a very rough morning. I wasn't feeling well and I had to still get my kids ready for church and drive them up to the church where they were going to sit with some of my friends who I had contacted beforehand. I am grateful that my children are so loving and forgiving. I know that I am so far from perfect and I also know that when I am not feeling well I don't try as hard to be my best. I am so grateful for repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that He knows what I am going through and He understands. He makes up the difference for my mistakes.
That is all I have for you today! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday night!
