Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ Love Me

I am a child of God. I know Heavenly Father loves me, and I love Him. I can pray to Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere. I am trying to remember and follow Jesus Christ.

Even though we cannot remember living with Heavenly Father, He remembers. He knows and loves each of us because we are His children.

One day we’ll remember how well we know Him, too. President Ezra Taft Benson once said, “Nothing is going to startle us more when we pass through the veil to the other side than to realize how well we know our Father and how familiar his face is to us. Can you imagine how exciting it will be to return home to Him someday?

Remembering that we are His children will help us live worthily so that we can return to live with Him forever. President Gordon B. Hinckley has said, “Let us never forget that we are children of God at all times.

Knowing that we are children of God helps us understand that we are never alone. When we pray, He answers. As we obey the commandments, pray for help, and rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can become more like Him.

It makes me happy to know that Heavenly Father loves me and that he wants me to return to live with him again one day. I know that this happy feeling comes from the Holy Ghost. I know that if we will learn to love our Heavenly Father and follow the teachings of his Son Jesus Christ, we can be happy both in this life and in the live to come.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
