Satan knows us better than we know ourselves sometimes…because he doesn’t have a veil of forgetfulness over him here on earth, like we do. He has an arsenal of tricks to tempt us and lead us away from God to misery. But Nephi debunks most of these and sheds light on Satan’s tools to help us not be overcome.
Joseph Smith has said that God is more “boundless in his mercies and blessings, than we are ready to believe or receive.” How can we prepare ourselves better to believe and receive all that God yearns to give us. This chapter gives a few insights into doing this.

I love the prophet, Joseph Smith. He was and is a great man who God used to restore the truth to the earth after centuries of darkness and confusion. There were other great men named Joseph in ancient history. In 2 Nephi 3 (in the Book of Mormon), Lehi talks to his son named…
I hope you don’t mind indulging a proud mother. You see, this year for Christmas I will be given the gift of a return missionary. My beautiful daughter pictured above will return home with honor on Christmas Eve. No words can express how joyous I know our reunion will be. I can’t adequately describe the…
