when joseph prayed to God with his soul-burning question, the sacred grove burst forth with light and knowledge. similarly, our heavenly parents greatly desire that each and every one of their children create a safe space where they can take their questions, ponderings, and research. our savior and redeemer, Jesus Christ invites us to “come, unto Him”, to find and cultivate our own “sacred grove.”
and what does YOUR “Sacred Grove” look or feel like? is it a PLACE? WHO is there? HOW are they lifting and supporting you in your quest for further light and knowledge? WHAT helps you feel the Holy Spirit most as you study and seek? is it TIME that you set aside each day to learn, listen and grow? are you taking the FEELINGS you receive THERE, with you each day, as you pursue this great journey?
there, in YOUR sacred grove, may you find the “pure love of Christ”--- that eternal confidence our heavenly parents have in each of their child’s earthly journey. may we invite and support each of our brothers and sisters, every member of our human family, to seek out and partake in their own sacred grove...unique to them and their needs. may we celebrate each of our divine journeys to become our best selves through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
