A Simple Message, a Profound Sense of Peace

Yun Jung Nam, Texas, USA

Not long ago our family moved from Korea to the United States. Things were hectic as we tried to get settled in. Our first Monday night in our new home we held a simple family home evening. A set of scriptures was our only resource, so we read in 3 Nephi about Christ’s appearance to the Nephites. As we did so, we felt that even though we were in a totally new situation, place, and country, the Lord was mindful of us, just as He was of the Nephites.

As a family we knelt in a circle and prayed. Despite our exhaustion from the move, we felt a deep sense of comfort, knowing that we would always have one another and Heavenly Father and the Savior to rely on. We knew that everything would turn out for the best. And it has.
