My dear family and friends. My prayers are with each of you. I pray that this little ministering message finds each of you healthy and happy. I hope that each of you understands that when I feel the prompting to do this, it is not because I think any of you are in dire need of the messages that might be presented. Besides helping me to learn how to “Hear Him”. These messages always seem to be for me in areas that I need to improve on. I send them to each of you only because I have the impression to do so. With the hope that you also might benefit from them. For most of you, I have your cell phone number. Co-workers, friends, family, ward and stake members, etc. I literally look at each of you individually and try to listen to the promptings of the spirit as to whether to send the reminder of the message to each of you or not. Following is a short video clip titled “The Prodigal Son”. Are not we all “prodigal” in some fashion or another? Do we sometimes squander our blessings? And sin and make mistakes? Do we not have the need for repentance and forgiveness and finding our way back to our Heavenly Father even if that means only being a servant in his house instead of a recognized son or daughter? I invite you to experience the following videos.

To find the avenue of repentance and eventual forgiveness. This song always helps me to start back on the right track when I stray. Perhaps you will feel the spirit teach you as you listen. https://www.youtube.com/embed/-IEeLxrqJfk?start=1&end=270
I invite you to spend a few more minutes and “Hear Him” through this Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/media/video/2011-10-2070-elder-d-todd-christofferson?lang=eng&collectionId=425f1ea2f78a7cf5285699ca6cd611f7b3d2be35 I (Debbie and I) love each of you. We testify that Jesus is the Son of God. He is our Savior and Redeemer. He is our advocate to our Heavenly Father. Because of Him and HIS atonement, we will have Eternal Life and the ability to reach Exaltation. He is THE Christ.
The following music is a piece performed by Jenny Oaks Baker. Used in a video to introduce the Monument of the Americas. https//monumentoftheamericas.org. A park that is to be built in Heber .
Christ in America Legacy Park
is an inspired, unprecedented sculpture park and garden dedicated to
our Savior Jesus Christ,
America as the Promised Land, and the Book of Mormon.
I met the artist /sculptor today in Heber he had an incredible mock-up of the Title of Liberty that when built and placed in the park will be 25 feet from the ground to the top of Moroni's sword. I invite you to take a look at the proposed park and the sculptures that will be there.
We a lead by a prophet of God, Russel M. Nelson. The Book of Mormon is a true book. It will keep us on the straight and narrow path if we will feast upon the words of Christ that are contained therein. We love each of you. Steve and Debbie Larsen
