I love the power of prayer. Heavenly Father sincerely listens. He can and will comfort you. I've felt it in my prayers while being here. If you have concerns or questions about your life that are worrying you (something for me was the character of hope), if you live your life in alignment with the Father's will and allow the Holy Ghost to be felt in your life, you will be guided to make the best decisions for yourself. Trust in the Lord's plan. You can find answers yourself. Through studying the scriptures deeply and praying and writing down the things that you learn, you will come to find the truth. You can ask Heavenly Father to help you to desire to change your heart. That is one of my deepest testimonies. With faith, Heavenly Father can change your very being so that you will WANT to change and be better. You simply have to ask with real intent.
I want you all to know that I love you all very much and am praying for you. I hope that you are all living with the ultimate goal in mind, to become the Heavenly Kings and Queens that I know you have the full potential to be.
To all my younger siblings, I want you to know that this is the best decision I have made. I am happy to sacrifice a small amount of time in my life so that others can be with their families for eternities. And I know that I will and already have changed and blessed my life so I can feel the spirit more strongly and live in accordance with the most happiness possible. This gospel is real. If you don't know that, you need to find out for yourself.
I love the letters that some have sent during the week. Thanks so much. I don't have time to respond to everything, but I certainly read them, so special thanks for the inspiring messages.
