Day 63, March 4

One of my favorite Primary songs is "We'll Bring the World His Truth" by Janet Kapp Perry.

We have been born as Nephi of old
To goodly parents who love the Lord.
We have been taught and we understand
That we must do as the Lord commands.

We have been saved for these latter-day days
To build the kingdom in righteous ways
We hear the words our prophet declares:
"Let each who's worthy go forth and share."

We know His plan and we will prepare.
Increase our knowledge through study and prayers
Daily we'll learn until we are called
To take the gospel to all the world.

I love the message of truth and faith.  Both seem in short supply today.  We are bombarded by un-truths from the media, from politicians, from Hollywood personalities and others as they try to convince us that unrighteousness is righteoussness, that wrong is right, that evil is good.

Does that sound naive?  I hope not.  I hope it reminds us that the truth exists, despite the lies that some individuals and organizations try to pass off as truth.

Joy for today:  hearing the truth and accepting it.


  1. Truth always brings joy. Mina's math teacher in a lesson on graphing yesterday had the class graph happiness as it related to increasing salary. Mina refused, drawing a circle with a line through it over the graph. Out of a class of 27, she was alone in this. She was right, of course. Money and happiness have nothing to do with each other. To both of our joy, the teacher agreed, and making that very point was the goal of his lesson. Finding truth is a precious thing, and it's only right to feel joy!
