For those who are interested in what was shared at the fireside there is an audio recording available at northstarlds.org.
I have made a spring resolution. (Considering I missed New Years ;) I have resolved to no longer be afraid of what people might think about me because of my challenge with SGA. If they want to make an issue of it it is their problem not mine.
It may be a strange jump but this experience reminds me of the time that Jesus Christ was asked what to do with the woman caught in adultery.
The reason these two thoughts are related is that I feel the Savior has told me the same thing in my life. He is less concerned with what I have done and more concerned with what I choose to do from now on. I don't have to be scared of those who accuse me of wrong doing and sin because the Lord's response is to let he who is perfect among you cast the first stone. But just as in the case of the adulterous woman, my accusers are sinners too. I can become just as clean and perfect as anyone else through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I don't have to let those who will hate and judge me control my life rather I can take control of it myself and seek to be filled with the Spirit of God. It is my desire that everyone can feel the same change in their lives that I have felt in mine.Until next time, Vaya con Dios!
