My Favorite Scripture
“If ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive; and blessed are those who come unto me” (3 Nephi 9:14).
This is one of my favorites because this is the scripture that gave me a testimony that Christ lives and wants us to follow Him.

We Are Missionaries Now
The article in the March 2007 Liahona “How to Prepare to Be a Good Missionary” sent us an important message. We don’t have to wait to be 19 to be missionaries. No! We are missionaries right now.
It told us that we should search and ponder the scriptures and pray always so that we can conquer Satan. We should always have faith in the Savior Jesus Christ.

All Is Well
I clearly remember the night when I found myself in a great spiritual conflict. I was on my way to institute when I started feeling tormented. My mind felt confused. I could not say that I knew the truthfulness of my faith. I no longer felt certain of anything. I felt discouraged and ashamed of myself and prayed for strength.
When I arrived at the meetinghouse, I was overwhelmed with sadness. I took a deep breath and entered the building. As soon as I approached the chapel, I heard the hymn
The feeling of peace was so great that I couldn’t contain my tears. The Lord had let me know that all would be well and that I was safe. I perceived that the powers of darkness had tried to destroy all the good I had learned but that God’s love is safe and warm. I understood that God is real and is our refuge and strength. I also learned that we can conquer trials and temptations if we exercise faith in God and always seek His guidance through prayer.
This world is full of trials, and we never know what is coming. We need to fully trust in God, increase our faith through studying the scriptures, and live our lives in accordance with His will.
