Here are a few things that bring me joy:

  • Precious little moments I have with my boys 
  • Hearing my boys laugh and play together 
  • My husband’s smile 
  • My dog’s goofy personality and warm snuggles

  • The gospel of Jesus Christ

I loved President Russell M. Nelson’s words at conference this year. He said:

Clearly, Lehi knew opposition, anxiety, heartache, pain, disappointment, and sorrow. Yet he declared boldly and without reservation a principle as revealed by the Lord: “Men are, that they might have joy.” Imagine! Of all the words he could have used to describe the nature and purpose of our lives here in mortality, he chose the word joy! 

Life is filled with detours and dead ends, trials and challenges of every kind. Each of us has likely had times when distress, anguish, and despair almost consumed us. Yet we are here to have joy? 

Yes! The answer is a resounding yes!
