Today was Fast and Testimony Meeting. I take notes at church whenever I can, because it helps me engage better with the meetings. I don't take notes on what the speakers say all of the time, but on what I learn from what they say. Here's what I learned today.

- The Savior is faithful in keeping His covenants with us. Which makes sense, because in Isaiah 7:14, Christ is prophesied to be Immanuel, which means "God is with us." I think this means not only will the Savior live on earth in Judea, but He is faithful with us.

- We aren't schooled enough in eternal things to understand the mechanics of the Atonement. So our Father doesn't try to explain it. He just tells us what it's called, how to get it in our lives, and how it works in relation to us.

- Think about the Savior, He will be able to put things into perspective.

- Rescue people. We all need it.

- "We all came here." I love when the young people get up and speak. They say true things in such an uncouched way. A young man, probably about 12 years old, said this, refering to the pre-earth life. Simple, and true.

- We all have a brother on a mission. A young woman spoke about the blessings of her brother serving a mission. All of us have a brother serving a mission right now: Jesus Christ.

What did you learn at church today?

Here's To You/This One's For You/It's All For You

Recently, I've gotten into looking at mormon blogs. Some posts I've seen have been quite informative or thought-provoking, while others have been totally wack. And don't get me started on the comments (No, I'm serious, this isn't a set up for another sentence. I will go off and not stop. Ask my cousin Joe.)!!! Something missing from many mormon-centric blogs I've discovered is a lack of focus on two things: Christ and personal revelation of the truth. So, that's what we're gonna talk about here at Ample Provision. Who's in?
