Green Eggs and Ham

So I imagine everyone has read the book Green Eggs and Ham, and you know how the moral of the story is "try it you might like it". Well I have been thinking about chocolate on those terms. If I ever met someone who had not tried chocolate I would give them some and say "try it you might like it". It is just so good I would want them to enjoy it as much as I do.
Well I realized that I feel the same way about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love this church, and I know that it's teachings are good and true. This is why I want my family members and others to try it. I think that is what Moroni's promise is all about. He says "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." Book of Mormon, Moroni, 10:4-5. In other words, "try it you might like it". I love this church and so I want everyone to be able to enjoy it's good news as much as I do. So to my family who I love dearly, "try it" find the good and the joy that can be yours, "you might just like it".

I would have never thought to compare the Green Eggs and Ham story to the desire of sharing the Gospel but you definitely made a point. Some things never change, you will always be a spiritual giant. Oh, and the pictures from Idaho Falls are awesome. Your little family picture is too cute. I am sorry to hear that Cooper has a few problems but I am sooooo glad that he is home from the hospital and doing well. He is so sweet!
