Day 12 #LightTheWorld: Blessed are They That Mourn


Crushing burdens and tragic losses can nearly overwhelm people at times. Those burdens could be the passing of a loved one or other unexpected loss. With a smile, a thoughtful gesture or kind word we can be an instrument in the Lord's hands to help those who mourn.  

President Thomas S. Monson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said, “Each of us came to earth having been given the Light of Christ. As we follow the example of the Saviour and live as He lived and as He taught, that light will burn within us and will light the way for others."
