We Will All Be Resurrected- Come Follow Me: June 8th-14th
We will live again. Each of us will be re-united with our marvelous bodies! What a blessing it is to have this knowledge. The loss of life, and the grief that follows, is one of the most painful parts of the human experience. The light in that grief is the beautiful truth that we will see our loved ones again and that we will also live again! This lesson was created to celebrate the beauty of the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ! We hope that your children will feel the joy to be found in the doctrine of the resurrection as they watch, listen and discuss these truths.
