Sometimes it feels like the odds are against us. We’ve tried so hard to do our best and be good people, yet the trials and tribulations are stacking up. It can be tempting to give up, and let go of our faith in God. But this is when it’s most important to have more faith than ever. We have to trust and have faith in Heavenly Father. That faith will get us through any trial or hardship.
Good Things to Come
When times are hard, it can be easy to get discouraged. Sometimes it feels like we can’t catch a break, and that Heavenly Father doesn’t hear our prayers.

Moments That Matter Most
It can be easy to get caught up in worldly things. But to get the most out of this life, we need to focus on the things that matter most.

The Other Prodigal Son
This stroy is an excellent reminder that God loves us all equally. He doesn’t think anyone is better than anyone else. We are all worthy, we all have great potential, and we all make mistakes and commit sin. It can be easy to feel jealous of others, or feel like others are better than us. Envy is a sin we must try to avoid, it plants negativity in our mind that will poison us and drive us away from God.
Forgiveness: My Burden Was Made Light

“A marriage, like a human life, is a precious, living thing. Spouses should exercise faith in Christ and love for each other to heal and strengthen their marriage relationship.” Keeping your marriage happy and healthy takes a lot of work. It takes sacrifice, humility, honesty, and so much more. It takes both partners to save a marriage. But it’s worth every effort, there is no bond like that of husband and wife.
So much comes along with building a family. Family members need to be there for one another and support each other. And parents should try to never miss an opportunity that offers an important lesson to be taught to their children. This fun, short video is an excellent example of all of this.
Men’s Hearts Shall Fail Them
