RootsTech 2016 is coming up! What is RootsTech? RootsTech is an annual conference hosted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It showcases the latest in research techniques, technology for family history research. It’s this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Feb. 4-6. You can even watch parts of it online!
I have received so many blessings from family history research and temple work. I know that blessings of protection, prosperity, and deliverance from bondage have come from it. I know the phrase “family history research and temple work” sounds as much fun as getting a cavity filled. So let’s call this work “how to get angelic help in all phases of your life.” We enlist the help of angels when we do temple work for the names of our own family members that we researched. It’s in harmony with natural law, the law of the harvest. What we put out, comes back to us. When we help people on the other side of the veil, to do what they can’t do, they are allowed to help us in ways we can’t help ourselves. I’ve seen it happen in my own life! I don’t have time to write up all my stories here, so I will point you to this: the best article I’ve read about angels helping us when we do the work is found here, written by Kim Sorenson. Kim was a busy, harried, stressed mom who had little children and a work-from-home business.Her husband was always gone for school, work and church service. Despite all of this, Kim found time to do temple and family history work and was blessed immeasurably by it. In short, family history research and temple work is a way to add dynamite, angelic power to your personal efforts! Elder Dale G. Renlund and his family will talk about this on Saturday, which will be streamed online.
If you want to get excited about this work, come to RootsTech 2016! You don’t even have to leave your house! You can watch some of it online from the comfort of your couch or, if you are like me, while you are cleaning or organizing!
Here is the online schedule for all three days of speakers about researching.
