For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.—Isaiah 54:10
Your Heavenly Father loves you–each of you. That love never changes. It is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank account. It is not changed by your talents and abilities. It is simply there. It is there for you when you are sad or happy, discouraged or hopeful. God’s love is there for you whether or not you feel you deserve love. It is simply always there. —Thomas S. Monson
This Day in LDS History
1839: Romania Bunnell (Pratt Penrose), later a pioneer, physician, and women’s advocate, is born in Washington, Indiana.
1844: Brigham Young is transfigured and has the appearance of Joseph Smith. This occurred in a public meeting which was meant to settle Sidney Rigdon’s claim to leadership. That afternoon, the Saints voted to sustain the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, rather than Sidney Rigdon, as the leaders of the Church.
1974: U.S. President Richard M. Nixon announces his resignation. Several Saints played a significant role, including future Apostle, D. Todd Christofferson, law clerk to Judge John J. Sirica. Christofferson and Sirica were the first to hear the Nixon tapes, which resulted in the president’s resignation.
