One Healthy Body

December 21, 2012


The Word of Wisdom is about the law of consecration. Until a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t know that. I’m reading the Doctrine and Covenants during November and December for my personal scripture study, journaling my life and observations as I go, and when I read Section 89 I stopped abruptly at these words (emphasis […]

I’ve had a Revelation!
