Dear brothers and sisters,
On November 20, I offered a message and prayer of gratitude for the people of the world. I am humbled that you would join with me in thanking God for His countless blessings to each of us.
Great change can start with individual acts of love and kindness. Thank you for your faith. Thank you for also recognizing and sharing experiences about the people and things for whom you are grateful. As we all do this, I hope you can sense how our collective faith and actions may ease the prevailing burdens of grief and uncertainty. Gratitude can give us renewed perspective and feelings of peace and hope.
Please continue this daily pattern of giving thanks through prayer, followed by action. God loves us and is concerned about all of His children. He will keep His promises and grant us the blessings of mercy, comfort, understanding, and eternal joy as we faithfully turn to Him in prayer and thanksgiving.
Now, as we enter the Christmas season and celebrate the living Christ, one of the most powerful ways we can show our gratitude is to serve His children. Let us follow His example to “Light the World” by loving and serving others, one by one.
President Russell M. Nelson

Let the Light In – Mat and Savanna Shaw with Peter Hollens (Peter Hollens Original Song) | #LightTheWorld

From the Shaws: Merry Christmas everyone! Our good friend Peter Hollens just wrote this beautiful original Christmas song with his co-writer Anna Gilbert. We are so excited to be singing it with him in this video. The song is called “Let the Light In” and it perfectly captures what is most important about Christmas: Love. To quote from the lyrics, “all we need this Christmas is Love, more Love.” “We sing of hope, the joy of the season, but it’s hard to feel that way with the pain of yesterday.” However, “if you let the light in hearts will open.”
