“L O V E Spells … ,” Ensign, Mar. 1985, 15
It had been a particularly bad day at home, and I was finally out of patience. I had tried everything I could think of to keep the kids under control, but nothing had worked. Frustrated, I sat down at the kitchen table. Almost pleadingly, I prayed to my Heavenly Father, “There has to be some way to get through to the kids!”
As I sat there, my gaze was attracted to the window above the sink where I had set a small red sign with large white letters. It was a handout that my oldest daughter had received in Primary about a week before. All it said was LOVE. L-O-V-E. Suddenly, the letters stood out and into my mind came the words, “Love Overcomes Virtually Everything.” I knew that Heavenly Father had answered my prayer.
Since that day, in any situation that has seemed practically insurmountable, the letters of that word have come back to give me renewed hope and direction. Marie Decker, West Jordan, Utah
