Come, Follow Me reading: D&C 23-27

This week we welcome a special guest Miss Lindsey Paradis on our show. She is a beautiful wife to Joseph and mom to  4 littles all six years and under.  She is the founder and host of the popular children's podcast Miss Lindsey's Come, Follow Me Podcast for Kids. Finally she is our friend and guest host today as we talk all about how we can find meaning and application in this week's Come, Follow Me reading.

Our journey this week led us to learn from Emma's blessing calling her to use her words to console and comfort her husband. He calls upon Emma to murmur not asking her to use her words in a more powerful way to comfort and console. The gifts we are given can often be used in many ways, our work is to use them in the ways that tap into the Lord's blessing and power.

Sometimes our view of the counsel to murmur not is that we need correction or condemnation because we were murmuring in the first place. Emily beautifully describes her feelings of God's love as she reads this verse, reminding us that "murmur not" can be a reminder that God is right there seeing us, hearing us, knowing what we need and reminding us that He has our back and is with us through all the hard.

Finally, Lindsey shares a moving story about her and her daughter and the power of compassion to change a competition into a revolution to move from me to we in the home. We love how Lindsey's courage to listen to the promptings of the Holy Ghost empowered her with love and changed everything in an instant.

This week we learn to show compassion and love by being intentional about using our gifts and talents to see, hear, and embrace one another.

We hope you feel seen and heard and loved by us here at Simple Joyful Home!
