Dear Mom

Alright, time for my rambling. i cant help myself. so right now, is an exciting time for me. i am figuring a few things out and we are having a few baptisms this week. i think i have mentioned these people in my past letters but if i have time i will tell you more about them and their conversions. but here is something that i learned that i absolutely loved. we have a leadership meeting recently and there was this meesage that has stuck with me. and its all about the doctrine of christ. when i say the doctrine of christ, this is what i mean. these principals are the way back to heavenly fathers presence. the atonement of jesus christ is at the center of these principals. so the principals are, faith in the lord jesus christ, repentance, baptism/ordinances, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. now that i have told you things that you aready know, this is what i learned about them and what effect they have in our lives. here are 3 of the effectls that the dotrine of christ that really stood our to me. so the more attatched we are to the doctrine of christ, the more focus, enthusiastic, and effective we will be. there are so many more things that the doctrine of christ does, but these are some of the things that it does for me. now, im not sure on how much sense this all makes, but here is another principal that i am learning all the time. the gospel of jesus christ is what makes people happy. so i have often asked myself, what can i do to more fully live the gospel and be more happy? the answer to this question could be different for just about every person. some people will need to repent for serious transgressions, while some need to trust god more. whatever the next thing that we need to do to come closer to chrsit is, whenever we do that thing, we will be more happy. the thing that i have found that i need to do better is to rely upon the holy Ghost more. these kinds of thoughts have been rattling around in my mind and it is wonderful, wonderfull to me. i dont have much time left, and im not sure on how much of what i said makes sense, but i love you. i hope you know that.
