    In the gospel of Jesus Christ you have help from both sides of the veil, and you must never forget that.

They will always be there, these armies of heaven, in defense of Abraham's seed.

There is absolutely no question as to who WINS because the VICTORY has already been posted on the SCOREBOARD.

    However late you think you are, however many chances you think you have missed, however many mistakes you feel you have made or talents you think you don't have, or however far from home and family and God you feel you have traveled, I testify that you have not traveled beyond the reach of divine love. It is not possible for you to sink lower than the infinite light of Christ's Atonement shines.

    Love. Healing. Help. Hope. The power of Christ to counter all troubles in all times-including the end of times. That is the safe harbor God wants for us in personal or public days of despair. That is the message with which the Book of Mormon begins, and that is the message with which it ends, calling all to 'come unto Christ, and be perfected in him' (Moroni 10:32).
