"Look Mom! I'm the Breadmaker!" - How God Loves Us

One day I walked into the kitchen to find my young son surrounded by all the large containers where I stored all our flour, rice, sugar and pasta. He was busy scooping – sugar into the flour – rice into the sugar – pasta into the rice – you get the picture. The whole kitchen looked like a white billowing cloud except for my son’s innocent grin and two large blue eyes staring up at me.

“Look, Mom. I’m the bread maker!” my young son said as he looked up at me.

Suddenly it dawned on me that whenever I made bread I pulled out all those containers and started scooping. He was trying to be like me. My feelings of frustration melted into love. I was so proud of him for trying.
As we got busy cleaning the kitchen I realized God loves us like that.

No matter how big the mess or mistake we’ve made, God loves us and is proud of us for trying. For each of us He lovingly provides a Savior to help us clean up, restore, heal and move forward.

“Fear not, little children, for you are mine, and I have overcome the world, and you are of them that my Father hath given me; And none of them that my Father hath given me shall be lost.”(D&C 50:41-42)
