    Have you wondered whether God really cares about you, or if He even exists? Consider this advice from an apostle on how to find out for yourself.

    President Henry B. Eyring promises that if we ask in prayer to be able to see God’s influence in our lives, we will recognize His love and blessings every day. When President Eyring notices blessings from God, he writes them down in his journal.

    In an open conversation with Elder David A. Bednar and his wife, Susan, she shared how that advice has made a difference in her own faith in God.

    “I’ve tried that, and I know that the Lord truly does bless us personally—that He truly is there for us,” she said. “Whether it’s a smile from someone, or someone who offers to help, God sends us little love notes every single day. We just have to pray to see them and look for them.”

    How have you seen God’s hand in your life today? Was there a time you felt helped or comforted by Him, even when you weren’t sure there was still hope? We want to hear about it! Sharing your story could help somebody just like you.
