I know that Jesus Christ lives!! He died for me, and was resurrected and lives today. I know this. I know Heavenly Father listens to me and is aware of me personally. He helps me with my deepest desires and deepest, unvoiced concerns (like learning Spanish! Now that one is voiced!). I will devote my whole self to Him for these next eighteen months in hopes of changing someone else, helping them to see how much God loves them too.
Life goes better when we act on the teachings of Christ. Men are, that they might have joy (2 Nephi 2:25).
