General Conference weekend, 2 times a year, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are my favorite weekends. This mornings session was my favorite of my entire life. Elder Jeffrey Holland told a story about my family. My grandpa, Grant Morrell Bowen had become disenchanted with the church. After years away, my uncle Brad and my mom approached him to return. The story isn’t just one for my family it is for all families. Find your way back, find the way to make things right, make peace with your enemies. Miss you every day grandpa ♥️. From Elder Holland: Forgiving and forsaking offenses, old or new, is central to the grandeur of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. “Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven,” Christ taught in the Sermon on the Mount. And in our day, “I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men.” It is, however, important for any of you living in real anguish to note what He did not say. He did not say, “You are not allowed to feel true pain or real sorrow from the shattering experiences you have had at the hand of another.” Nor did He say, “In order to forgive fully you have to reenter a toxic relationship or return to an abusive, destructive circumstance.” But notwithstanding even the most terrible offenses that might come, we can rise above our pain only when we put our feet onto the path to true healing. That path is the forgiving one walked by Jesus of Nazareth, who calls out to each of us, “Come, follow me.” In our shared ministry of reconciliation I am asking you to be a peacemaker. I make that appeal in the name of the Prince of Peace, who knows everything about innocence and injustice, about false accusations and being “wounded in the house of [his] friends,” but who still found the strength to forgive and forget—and always will.” #generalconference.
