    Thank you for another great column! I loved the comment about your sons teaching as companions. I hope I get to see the same thing someday with my boys.

    Via! My heart was transported back to my mission and the many sweet experiences there that were just like this... also to post mission, and a great desire to have this experience in my home now, and often...

    Thank you for sharing this with us! So glad you are back!

    I like you had the trajectory of my entire life changed forever because of the power of that Book. Is not this real?

    RE: Thebigsamoan, Mosiah 7:27) And because he said unto them that Christ was the God, the Father of all things, and said that he should take upon him the image of man, and it should be the image after which man was created in the beginning; or in other words, he said that man was created after the image of God, and that God should come down among the children of men, and take upon him flesh and blood, and go forth upon the face of the earth.

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God made.(John 1:1-3 NET)Verse 14,..the Word(Jesus) became flesh and took up residence among us. We saw his glory—the glory of the one and only, full of grace and truth, who came from the Father. God becomes Man not Man become God

    Great article, Vai! You and your lovely family surely are playing your part in the great hastening of the Lord's work! God bless!

    @Sharrona, You might as well give it up lady! Hardly anyone cares about that same nonsense you spewed out every time you post. Not even sure if you actually understand that mess yourself. If Jesus morphed into God himself and became man, who was that still left in heaven that he prayed to and asked to "remove this cup, but not my will but thine be done?" How can he morphed into God and still have God left in heaven while he was here? Didn't he say that he came not to do his will but the will of the Father that sent him? Didn't he referred to his Father as "greater than I?" And what did he do with the resurrected body he took with him to heaven? You know, the one that was seen by over 500 men while he ascended up to heaven?

    RE: the Book of Mormon changed my life.
    The Holy Spirit Bears witness of Jesus and that Jesus sends the Holy Spirit (John 15:26). Jesus will send the Holy Spirit. If you don't have the right Jesus you can't have the true Holy Spirit, and your testimony is invalid. E.g

    “….(Jesus)he existed in the *form (morphe) of God did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped, but emptied himself by taking on the form (morphe) of a slave, by looking like other men ,and by sharing in human nature. Phil 2:6-7 (NET)

    The Greek term translated *form(morphe) indicates a correspondence with reality. The meaning of this phrase is that Christ was truly God. Verse 7, Truly man. Theanthropic/Jesus
