The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
As I traveled to the 2016 GMBA camp, filled with anticipation for the theme, "The Way," I spotted a sign for exit 266 on the Pennsylvania turnpike. I immediately thought of the hymn, "God’s Way" in the Saints Hymnal. My mind always relates numbers to hymn numbers. (You piano players out there know what I mean.) I began to ponder what ideas and topics would be discussed during our chapel, seminars, and worship services.
At the end of camp, I traveled back on the PA turnpike, my family in tow. My husband was driving. Shortly after our departure, we encountered a very bad rainstorm. As we traveled between tunnels and mountains, there was a misty fog that made visibility difficult.
Today's Miracle Monday is a sweet story by Sister Donna Bogle. Enjoy!
When turning 18, most young people (and their parents) look forward to choosing a college or university, completing senior projects and pictures, going to prom, and the excitement of impending graduation to name a few. Our family isn't like "most," but we've still seen God's great hand in our lives.
Having an autistic son has presented us with many challenges and countless blessings in our “peculiar” (1 Pe. 2:9) path. When our son turned 18, my husband and I began the process of applying for guardianship so that we can continue to be responsible for him. Unless we petition for guardianship, the law says that he can make decisions for himself regarding his health, safety, and all areas of life. Presently, Jacob isn't capable of doing this.
