It was so good to see all of you! I`m glad everything is going well. I had a great Christmas and am super excited to start this new year.

I wanted to share with you all something that I read this week that I loved. It is in the conference talks. It`s called ¨Free Forever, to Act for Themselves¨ By Elder Christofferson. This talk is super awesome and you should all read it. I like it because it talks about how God wants us to succeed but He isn`t going to force us to. He says,
The gospel of Jesus Christ opens the path to what we may become.Through the Atonement of
Jesus Christ and His grace, our failures to live the celestial law perfectly and consistently in
mortality 
can be erased and we are enabled to develop Christlike character. Justice demands,
however, 
that none of this happen without our willing agreement and participation. It has ever been so.
Our very presence on earth as physical beings is the consequence of choice each of us made to
participate in our Father’s plan.9 Thus, salvation is certainly not the result of divine whim, but neither
does it happen by divine will alone.1
We have to be willing to act in order to receive help from God to return to Him.
I hope that this week we can all work hard to live the gospel and remember the why. We do it to be happy and to receive the blessings that God, as our Heavenly Father, so very much wants to give us.
I love you all a ton.
Have a very great New Year! (I can`t believe we`re already in 2015! :O)
Con muchìsimo amor y un abrazo de oso
