President James E. Faust

President Faust passed away this morning surrounded by his friends and family. I thought this needed to be added to my blog just because I've always looked up to him more than I have with any other apostle. He's manner always struck home with me. He'll be missed by many. My prayers of comfort go out to his family and friends. If ya'll get a chance, check out and read up a bit on his accomplishments... He truely was a great man. We love you Presidnet Faust!

"In the pain, the agony, and the heroic endeavors of life, we pass through a refiner's fire, and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright, intact, and strong. In this way the divine image can be mirrored from the soul. It is part of the purging toll exacted of some to become acquainted with God. In the agonies of life, we seem to listen better to the faint, godly whisperings of the Divine Shepherd."
- James E. Faust (1920 - 2007)
