I didn’t get more than one Memorial Day story up here on my the blog from my ebook, like I had hoped. Oh well, I will get those up another time! On to Fathers’ Day, which is this Sunday, June 17! I have collected a bunch of stories about the power of fathers and fatherhood. Here’s a cute story from Elder Kazuhiko Yamashita of the Seventy.
It goes with what I wrote yesterday. God gives us lions when pray for courage, because he knows we are part lion can learn the courage he knows is in us by taming the lions he gives us.
This is an example of the stories I have curated for you in my ebook. You can get your own copy by going here and clicking the button to pay $9.99 at the bottom of the page. I love to read these stories to my kids every morning after we do family scripture study, journal writing, and family prayer, to help us feel fired up with faith in God to go about our day.
He refers to the above cartoon from Disney. Here’s my favorite part of what he says:
You are a child of God, and He loves you. Before we were born on earth, each one of us was a beloved spirit son or daughter in our Heavenly Father’s family. But many of us don’t realize this. If we know who we are, we can be like the lion and fight off bad things so that we can protect others and not lose our way.
I am thankful for the wonderful gifts of the gospel and the plan of salvation. I am thankful that we know who we are so we can be strong—just like Lambert.
