Letter 4/19/15

Dear Blog,

I think my favorite part of this last week has been the Active Member Lessons we have done. It's been amazing to me to see the strong testimonies of the members here. I don't know if they realize how much power and influence they have for good in the lives of those around them. It just astounds me the power one member can have--especially a member with an understanding of the Atonement and the blessing that is in their life. When we understand that, we can't help but try and share it. We can't help but invite others to the happiness we have. But it's not just about the knowing about the Atonement: "The power of the Atonement is not limited to knowledge alone.  The Atonement also provides power to do...... And when we fail, it is the power to try again.  Faith of sufficient intensity will always lead to repentance.  We apply the Atonement when we have 'faith unto repentance' "  (Alma 34:15, quote by Brad Wilcox)
