I was drawn to this passage this morning in trying to comprehend the mercies of the Son of God upon me. So frequent are the powers of renewal that I have been able to access through faith on the Son of God, that it is amazing — truly amazing — that he would care enough […]
Luke 1:46-55 & 1 Samuel 2:1-10 (Psalm 23) See also “Low Estate” Make a detailed study of these two passages of scripture, notably both from women.In both of these stories there are temples, there are people of covenant with the Lord, there is meekness and lowliness of heart, and devotion to the most high God.

Alma, that rebellious priest in the court of King Noah, when he came to his senses after hearing the words of Abinadi, repented of his sins and formed the Church of God.
