Elder Ballard on Thanksgiving

I love where we live in the lower avenues. One thing I have particularly loved is going to Church on Temple Square in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Our stake hosted Elder Russell M. Ballard for a little Friday night Thanksgiving devotional and it was simple but incredible.

3 things to take away:
  1. Prayer to thank Heavenly Father for his patience.
  2. Fortify and strengthen our own testimonies so we can strengthen others testimonies, particularly that of the family.
  3. Never lose the opportunity for service.
He ended with, "May we accomplish all that our father has sent us here to do."

I am so filled with gratitude this Thanksgiving season. Life is such a beautiful process of continual learning.
