Carving Out a Better Life Thanks to the Book of Mormon


Since the time of my
birth, I have had polio. There were no doctors
close to my area. 2 Nephi chapter 25,
verse 23: “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.” The truths of the Book
of Mormon have the power to heal, comfort, restore,
succor, strengthen, console, and cheer our souls. The Book of Mormon has
helped me have a better life. Before, I was a
fairly weak person. Now I am very strong. I will continue
to read and follow the commandments of God,
following the Book of Mormon until my last day. [MUSIC PLAYING]

    What an inspiring video. This guy developed some amazing talent despite his challenges

  37. Our Hope is in Jesus, not religion says:

    God bless this man for his resilience. But grace is not received "after all we can do". Grace is received by opening your hands and saying thank you Lord. Nothing we DO can qualify us, earn it or make us deserving of it. It's all about what Jesus DID for us, not what we can do. Once you fully realize the implications of it, LOVE will your reason to do good. Not getting into heaven, earning blessings or qualifying for them: those are al extrinsic motivators and fail to bring us as close to God as love would. God is LOVE (1john4). Nothing can bring us closer to Him than doing things from love and thereby becoming love.
