Come help the YW sew their bonnets and skirts for Trek this Tuesday at 7pm at the church!!

Today's lesson was Elder Neil L Andersen conference address "Children"
As we look into the eyes of a child, we see a fellow son or daughter of God who stood with us in the premortal life. It is a crowning privilege of a husband and wife who are able to bear children to provide mortal bodie for these spirit children of God. We believe families, and we believe in children. The commandment to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. When to have children and how many children to have are private decisions to be made between a husband and wife and the Lord. These are sacred decisions-decisions that should be made with sincere prayer and acted on with great faith.
This is a time of economic instability and financial uncertainty. President Monson said:"If you are concerned about providing financially for a wife and family, may I assure you that there is no shame in a couple having to scrimp and save. It is generally during these challenging times that you will grow closer together as you learn to sacrifice and to make difficult decisions." In the most beloved story of a baby's birth, there was no decorated nursery or designer crib-only a manger for the Savior of the world.
Families are central to God's eternal plan. Elder Andersen testifies of the great blessing of children and of the happiness they will bring us in this life and in the eternities.
Hope you all have a great week and enjoy Conference Weekend.
