Easter and Living an Abundant Life

^^ Brooks enjoying the Easter Bunny's leftovers ;) ^^

After my last post, I am feeling especially happy to think back on our little Easter Sunday, it was such a good day...filled with sunshine, an inspiring day at church, finding the eggs Brooks had painted and the Easter bunny hid, making festive deviled eggs (that took for-ever. haha), a lovely dinner at the Kjars, Brooks an Ava enjoyed time with cousins, and of course time spent thinking about and discussing the love of our Savior and His Resurrection and Atonement.

I'm so grateful to know that "the miracle of the Atonement is not just that we can live after we die but that we can live more abundantly"...such an inspiring truth from His Grace is Sufficient, a devotional speech given by Brad Wilcox. That is what I want. I hope and pray that I'm creating and living an abundant life, for me and especially my family, filled with real joy and time spent doing things that are lasting and that make a difference.
With Him, I know we will. :) 

Happy (belated) Easter everyone!

What a beautiful post! Thank you for sharing "His Grace is Sufficient", I really enjoyed reading this speech. Parts of this speech really resonated with me. I have been in phases of my life where I feel unworthy to attend church or speak to God. This speech just reminded me that in those moments I am the only thing standing between me and God and that he accepts me as I am at all times. As usual, keep up the great work.
