Why I love this quote?
This is a great reminder of our celestial origins. God is our father, the father of our spirits. We are His children. He created this earth and put us on it for a purpose. God called all the spirits in Heaven before him for a grand council in which the purpose and plan was presented and accepted. We are living out that plan now, and some day we will be brought back to God’s presence with a perfect recollection of all these events, though we can’t now remember those pre-earth events. This knowledge is comforting and strengthening to me.
