That They Might Have Joy

By Whitney

One of my favorite scriptures says, “Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.2 Nephi 2:25. Our purpose on Earth is to be happy and have joy.  Jesus Christ and His Gospel is the source of that everlasting joy.

I had the opportunity to attend the Saturday Afternoon session of LDS General Conference. During that session everyone (over 20,000 people!) stood and sang We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet.


I couldn’t help but get emotional while standing in the Conference Center singing this song. I am truly so grateful to have a living prophet that guides the Lord’s church. I love President Monson.

The last line of the song really struck me, “While those who reject this glad message, shall never such happiness know.” I want to go on a mission for the LDS Church to share the glad tidings of the gospel with others. AS members of Christ’s church, we share the gospel and invite others to come unto Christ so they can feel this happiness in their lives, too.
