"Hope for a Better World"

Hope is always found in the hand of the Lord. The Lord loves his children, and when we trust him enough to follow him, we can find the peace we are searching for. I know God lives, and loves each of us individually as his children. The Book of Mormon tells us where we should look to for this hope. 

 "Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God." (Ether 12:4)

It all starts with that one step of faith, sometimes it's a step in the dark, but as we go forward God will always light the path. There is a way to light if we choose not to dwell in darkness. President Monson councled us, "to look to the lighthouse of the Lord...there is no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong, no mariner so lost but what the lighthouse of the Lord can rescue. It beckons through the storms of life. It calls, “This way to safety. This way to home.'" If we follow the council of the prophets, we can overcome the darkness we feel trapped in. It is essential that we remember to "accept that darkness exists and choose not to dwell there." (President Deiter F. Uchtdorf), there is always a better way. 

I invite you to learn more, to find the hope you lack. Come, join us.
