General Conference thoughts: The Vision of the Redemption of the Dead

by President M. Russell Ballard

This is what keeps me holding on.  This is what I find comfort in.  This is my hope.

I love reading section 138 in the Doctrine and Covenants.  With the background President Ballard provided I love it even more. It is not a whimsy possibility, it is a well thought out, pondered over, prayed about hope.

When the dots don’t seem to connect in other areas this is what I hold onto.  I like to imagine a cheering squad of my ancestors waiting to meet or reunite with me.  For me, this makes sense.

I love the gospel because it tells me there will be sweet reunions.  For that, I am grateful.
