Glad it's over

I just have to say I am so glad that this whole crazy election stuff is over. The thing I am most happy about was the Proposition 102 passed here in Arizona. It's the same as Prop 8 in California. I am so grateful that it passed, it's been really stressing me out. We had received counsel from our leaders here that this was a very important issue and how critical it was for us to get the word out and support this cause to save traditional marriage. I am so thankful for the Proclamation, the scriptures, inspired leaders, the spirit, and with that, what more do we need. I've had some good thoughts through all of this, I have realized that I cannot control what goes on outside of my home. I can make sure that I have a home where my children are taught true principles and the spirit can be felt. I can arm them with the truthfulness of the gospel so that when they leave the sanctuary of our home into the world so that they can make their own choices the way the Lord would have them choose.

I had no idea Arizona was voting on gay marriage... I too was very glad for Proposition 8 and am glad that Arizonians feel traditional marriage is important!!!

i am grateful as well. The hype here in Utah has been amazing. The opposition towards the church has been astounding. I am so thankful they passed as well.

Thanks for the great reminder! I totally feel the same way. We can't always guard and shield our kids from all the bad, but we can arm them to help them get through it.
