I have been thinking a lot about the effect Jesus Christ has had in my life,
especially with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints'
"Because of Him" Easter initiative.
Because of Him...
What are the major ways I finish this sentence in my day-to-day life?
As a mother of young children, one thing I see every day is that
Because of Him my efforts are made good enough
when alone they simply aren't.
Because of Him I want to live my life in a more pure, holy, charitable way.
And of course, Because of Him my family can enjoy this happiness together eternally.
Every single positive thing in my life can be traced back to Jesus of Nazareth.
Every. Single. Good. Thing.
And with joy I sing with millions around the world,
"Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: 'I know that my Redeemer lives!'"
"Christ's victory over death ended the human predicament. Now there are only personal predicaments, and from these too we may be rescued by following the teachings of him who rescued us from general extinction."
