Kayla and I traveled to Palmyra, New York on Sunday after sacrament meeting. We stayed two night in Upstate New York to visit the site of the Restoration.
In a cabin, much like this one a 14 year old took to heart James 1:5, knowing he lacked wisdom on which church to join, he asked in faith, Heavenly Father, which church was the right one to join.
Young Joesph pondered and prayed over this decision for awhile. One morning, walking out into these woods to try and figure out, which church he should join. Going in with a complete trust in the Lord that he would receive an answer.
He received an answer that spring morning.
He learned that he should join none of them.
He learned that Heavenly Father knows us by name. That God and Jesus Christ are two separate beings, and that we have a purpose on this earth.
We walked in those footsteps this week. Learning about the history of the church. Finding answers to prayers that we in our hearts.
Finding peace that only Heavenly Father can bring.
On this trip I learned a lot of history I did not know. I did not have a faith defining moment, I just felt at peace.
Sometimes, just knowing you are on the right path is enough.
