I got to look

into the eyes of an Apostle of my Lord today. D. Todd Christofferson presided in the meetings of my home stake's stake conference. I grasped his hand in both of mine, and looked in his smiling eyes and said thank you. He looked directly back into mine and asked me my name. I told him it was Karlie Jean. I could see the love of Christ in his eyes. He is a man of God. Meeting with him made more firm my testimony of the Prophet Thomas S. Monson, his councilors, and the twelve apostles. How amazing that we have such men to govern us. I now have a new love and respect for this man. I hope I can say that I am forever changed by the spirit that he carried with him. That will depend on my diligence in acting on what has been revealed to me.

I know that Elder Christofferson will not remember my name among the hundreds that he greeted today, but I know my Father in Heaven and my Savior both know it well, and are mindful of me. I am grateful.
