I haven't completed the first challenge yet. It is taking me longer to gather my thoughts for this than I thought but I did find a great scripture to include on my first page. It was in this month's Ensign as part of The First Presidency Message,
“For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do. …
“And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins” (2 Nephi 25:23, 26).
Nephi was referring to why he kept a record, for his children and brethren. I felt it expressed why I want to keep a record. For my children. So they can know of my testimony of Christ, "to persuade [my] children to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God, that [my] children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins"
On to week two.
All day today I was thinking of what to post as our focus for week two. Many words and ideas came to mind but one stood out, Faith in Every Footstep. You could scrapbook about a time (or times) in your life when you had to rely on faith. Maybe include scripture verses that stengthened you, songs that brought you peace, people that encouraged and supported you, whatever helped you have the faith you needed to carry on. You could scrapbook about how you have faith everyday, in every footstep. Is there something you do everyday to keep your faith strong? Scrap about it and share your experiences with your children and grandchildren.
When you finish your Legacy of Faith projects be sure to post a comment and link us to your blog or site so we can be inspired by your creations. I can't wait to see what you create!
