Doctrine and Covenants 51:17!

This scripture is actually pretty dear to my heart.... as weird as that sounds. I first really, really listened to this when we were trying to find a way out of this area. I was pushing the Lord to get us out and he kept pushing back. I wasn't willing to accept it and he was patient. My honey and I had been praying. We were fasting. I was a wreck!

Even if I fall into sin, my Savior can help me return to a pure ...

This week, I have been working through the Good Works section of the personal progress booklet. In one of the requirements, it says that one of the listed scriptures needed to be memorized.
