Are y’all excited for general conference?! It is going to be so great! As we prepare ourselves with questions and our concerns, they WILL be addressed and answered if we listen intently. It works every time 🙂 We are so blessed to have the guidance of the prophet and apostles.  The world is so crazy and that craziness is steadily increasing. I know that as we LIVE what the prophet calls us to do, as will be well in these troubled times.

I  know that this gospel is true and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. There is no doubt in my mind because the Spirit has testified to me that it is true. It has brought me so much confidence and joy and what a blessing to share that with others. I invite you all to read it and let it change your life.When it is coupled with the Bible, we can be a part of the fullness of the gospel. Let’s not miss out on those special blessings and joy that we can have!

 

I love you all!

I know that the Savior LIVES. I know that because of him, we can
truly overcome anything. He enables us to become better. We simply must
follow his example. Although punishment awaits rebellion, the Lord always
responds to our weaknesses with mercy. Of that I am so grateful for.  
Love ya!   Sister Kim Eckman

Nothing Brings Greater Joy Then Service!‏

 I know that when we are in the service of others, we are serving God. I also know that when we are willing to serve, the Lord will place people in our paths that need us. Nothing brings greater joy then being an instrument in God’s hands. I challenge you all this week to serve someone. 🙂
Have a wonderful week!
Love,

A little Update… :)‏

As a Sister Training Leader, just as the title implies, I have many opportunities to lead and train other missionaries. I am called to uplift and inspire. I have reflected on other leaders that I have seen and what skills they have to know how I can be a more effective leader. Before too long I realized that I should look towards the ultimate leader to know how I need to lead. I began studying at least a chapter a day from the Bible in the four gospels. This week I read Matt 20:34. I noticed the order of Christ’s feelings and actions. First, he had compassion on them. Then, he healed them and lastly, they followed him. As I pondered that, I realized that that is exactly how I will best influence other missionaries under my stewardship. First I must take time to know them and understand them. I must have compassion for them and recognize the things they are struggling with. Then I must “heal” them….or in my case, I must serve them. Then they will be open and ready for suggestions and will heed my counsel. I am working so hard to be a better leader and apply the Savior’s attributes in my life. I am so grateful that we have Him as a perfect example.

It has been a wonderful week and I am excited for the week to come. Our mission is focusing on miracles and purifying ourselves so that God can bless us with miracles. I am a huge advocate of that, so I am super excited! My making ourselves better, we are able to be an instrument in God’s hand and we are much more capable to do his work. It’s wonderful!

I love you all and appreciate your love and support! Continue to think of Christ and strive to be like him!

Love,

Sister Kim Eckman
