How Can Your Patriarchal Blessing Change Your Life? | 11 August 2023

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Patriarchal blessings are personal messages from God to help direct and comfort you throughout life. If you will choose to study it often it has the power to change your perspective through difficult times. 

Check back tomorrow for more inspiration.


All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.Genesis 49:28


Your patriarchal blessing is a message from your Heavenly Father and will likely include promises and inspired counsel to guide you throughout your life. A patriarchal blessing is not going to map out your life or answer all your questions. If it doesn’t mention an important life event, do not take that to mean you won’t have that opportunity. Likewise, there is no guarantee everything in your blessing will come to pass in this life. A patriarchal blessing is eternal, and if you live worthy, promises that are not fulfilled in this life will be granted in the next. Kazuhiko Yamashita
