I spent sometime looking at quotes for the previous blog posts. I decide that there need to be a quote that just packs a punch. Nailing right on the head why the atonement is so necessary. Then I decide who better to talk about the atonement than Prophets and Apostles.

Now I present to you....

     "When we sin, we turn away from God. When we repent, we turn back toward God." Elder Neil A Anderson “The truth is that we all need repentance." President Henry B Eyring “Each of us has made mistakes, large or small, which if unresolved will keep us from the presence of God." Elder Richard G Scott "True repentance must come to each individual. It cannot be accomplished by proxy. One can neither buy nor borrow nor traffic in it." President Spencer W Kimball "Those who repent will be particularly blessed by the Atonement." Elder Quentin L Cook  "If any has stumbled in his journey, there is a way back. The process is called repentance. Our Savior died to provide you and me that blessed gift. Though the path is difficult, the promise is real: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow' (Isaiah 1:18)." President Thomas S Monson

     We have all sin and that is a part of life. This is why we need Christ who suffered so we can repent and have that second chance. We can take this advice from Timon an Pumbaa: (Pumbaa) It's like my buddy Timon always says: you got to put your behind in your past. (Timon) No, no no. Amateur. Sit down before you hurt yourself. It's "You got to put your past behind you." Whats do is done there is no need to go back and live in the past. Repent and change your life through Jesus Christ.

Trust Him

     To have faith is to hope that the best will come. Like most people, I have a fear of the unknown. I didn't know where I was going to serve on my mission. I didn't know if I was ready to go. I didn't know a lot of things but there was someone who I knew that knew all the answers to the questions I had.
     He knew I was going to Nashville for my mission. He knew that experiences that I experienced in my life would contribute to who I am today. He knew that I was going to be alright and that I just need a little motivation to get going in the right way. He is my Heavenly Father. He is the one who is never failing. He is someone who I can put my whole trust in. Not only can I fully have faith in Him, I can also have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. He will lead me to what I need to do and know.
     Having true faith which leads you to action is something hard to come around. Doubts fly in and cloud our judgment. But I know that as we trust more in a loving Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ, we can reach all the way to the stars and back. "He is your beloved Heavenly Father, who seeks your good, your happiness. He desires with all the love of a perfect and pure Father that your supernal destination.... All [we] have to do is trust [our] Heavenly Father. Trust Him enough to follow His plan." Dieter F Uchtdorf
