I am thankful every day and strive to always keep a prayer in my heart. I love November for a number of reasons. Currently, I live in the beautiful state of Utah and love it. The mountains here are amazing.
Second of all, there is always a lot of political buzz and elections take place the first week, followed by my birthday. I enjoy being engaged with our country and taking an active part to do my role as a US citizen. I love our country. I love my birthday too because I get to enjoy the full day with my family. I get to reflect on another year past and set goals for a new upcoming year. It is always super refreshing; one of my favorite things to do is attend the temple on my birthday. I have done it for the past 5 years. This year my wife and I attended the Logan Temple and participated in marriage sealings.
Having a prayer and fast of Thanksgiving is also one of my favorite things to do in the month of November. I hope to always have this but it seems easier this month.
Most importantly my heart is full of gratitude when I think about the Savior, Jesus Christ and what he has done for each one of us. He has shown us the way by teaching truth and setting the perfect example for each to follow. He has given me the privilege of being married to my sweetheart in the temple and beginning an eternal family. I love Him for this. I am so thankful for my family and love them dearly.
Moving forward, I am committed to follow Jesus Christ and strive to live by His teachings. I have a strong testimony and belief in Him and His gospel. I know that He lives and speaks to living prophets whom are called to help guide us through these turbulent times.
