A Savior is Born



 


More than 2,000 years ago, God sent Jesus Christ to be our Savior.  Jesus Christ was born to save us from our sins, born so we can be born again and return to live with God someday.  Let us rejoice greatly this Christmas season, for unto all of us #ASaviorIsBorn.


On this 3rd of December 2015 I am humbly grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who created a plan of happiness for each one of us.  We all chose in a previous life to follow the Savior, Jesus Christ and accepted this plan.  We knew that coming to earth would not be a cake walk but rather a test of our faith.  How is your faith in Jesus Christ
This plan would allow us to receive a mortal body and gain experiences to help us journey through life on earth.  We knew that we would face temptations from the evil one to sin and falter.  But we also knew that experiencing sin and evil we could feel and see good and righteousness as an opposite way of life.
 We knew that our testing period on earth would be endured more easily if we turned to the Savior, Jesus Christ, who was sent in our behalf to atone for our sins and overcome spiritual death.  We knew that He would be persecuted and hung upon the cross to overcome physical death.  We knew that he would resurrect and LIVE again!  
I testify that I know my Redeemer Lives.  I know that He loves each one of us and offered the ultimate sacrifice.  His life was one of perfect obedience to the father in all things.
As the Christmas season is upon us, may we take the time to reflect often what Christ has done for each one of us.
I am committed this month to take time each day and thank our Heavenly Father for the gift of His son, Jesus Christ and reflect upon our abundant blessings.  This is my gift back to them.  Please share this video if it lifted your spirit this day!

I am grateful for the opportunity each day to share the restored gospel of Jesus Christ with those around me.  I served a full-time mission 15 years ago in Sacramento California and saw many Come Unto Christ.  I was called Hmong speaking and had a life-changing experience that helped me build a foundation for the rest of my life.  Those will surely be days never forgotten!

Angels We Have Heard on High


It is that special season once again as we reflect on our Savior, Jesus Christ and His mortal ministry upon this Earth.   This AWESOME video above depicts the reason for the season and was launched last year to celebrate the Savior's birth.   After showing my children this Angels We Have Heard on High rendition on YouTube they have requested to re-watch it over and over throughout this past year.   Nearly every night when I lie them down to sleep they request to sing this song along with their stories and prayer...Yep, we've got it memorized and sang it all summer long.

This past week I have reflected a lot on our Savior Jesus Christ and my heart has been full of gratitude for all the blessings that we have been given.  His sacrifice in our behalf is the greatest event that has ever occurred in the history of all mankind.  The anointed Messiah atoned for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and died upon the cross of Calvary after living a life free of sin and of perfect obedience to our Father in Heaven.  He is our exemplar in all things.  I am grateful for my knowledge and testimony that He lives.  I know that Jesus Christ was resurrected and lives today.  I have obtained this witness because the Holy Ghost has manifest this truth over and over to me throughout my life. 

May we all take a few minutes each day to reflect on our abundant blessings and the reason for the season!  Enjoy the sweet message and amazing talent performed here!
