Hello! 🤍 I had trouble posting these days because nothing feels right. You watch what’s going on in our world right now and you don’t know how to handle all of this. It’s so overwhelming and I spent the last couple of days trying to understand, listen and learn what can I do to help. And I suppose, this what we all have to do. It’s our time, to listen and learn, to educate ourselves on how can we help. And when we’re ready, to speak up and stand up for those in need. This is the most important thing. So please, if you see someone being racist or disrespectful towards anyone, don’t stay quiet. Speak up! I want to believe that nobody is born bad or evil, and that racism is taught. When someone fails to educate another person on what’s right and what’s wrong, it’s our job to teach them. So, if your friends or anyone you know are racist or disrespectul, teach them, show them and make them understand that racism it’s not ok. Hate is taught, but so is love. This is how we can change.
Also, do whatever you can to help. Sign petitions, donate, volunteer, support organizations, use your platforms to speak up. Anything you do is helpful, even the tiniest things, everything matters.
I want to end this post with saying that you’re not alone in this. I’m here and I’m happy to listen. If you ever need to talk to someone, please don’t hesitate to text me.
Stay strong! #blacklivesmatter ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽

"Dearest Cecilia, the story can resume. The one I had been planning on that evening walk. I can become again the man who once crossed the Surrey park at dusk, in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life. The man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame." .
“...let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” -Hebrews 12:1
It has been a HEAVY week! A really sad and emotional one. Something that has made my heart heavy is the lack of empathy people have shown to a very serious long standing problem.
I know I don’t have all the answers or any answers really. But I do believe in God and I do believe in Jesus Christ. It brings me peace and comfort knowing that there is a higher power and that the atonement not only covers sin. But the atonement covers the sadness and the injustices that you may feel and a host of other things. To my friends and loved ones, seek in the peace that the atonement can bring.
Being angry is easy. Lashing out against those who we feel don’t understand us is easy. Simply writing people off because we feel their opinion is ignorant is easy! Approaching an intense situation with humility, meekness, and with an open heart is extremely difficult! Coming into a heated situation with the ears to listen, not to have an opinion, but to truly listen to understand is exceptionally difficult. My fear for both sides is that we are too quick to speak and not quick enough to listen. I want us to remember that approaching a situation with love, compassion and empathy will build more bridges to understanding than anger, hatred, and divisiveness ever will. In order to achieve this we must be patient with others and sometimes ourselves. I know I’m guilty of this...but I can’t be the only one. To my friends, family, and any who are reading this. Let us hold ourselves accountable to a higher standard. Let us seek to build bridges for ourselves and our neighbors. Let us try to understand and grow together, opposed to constantly fighting against one another. Lastly, “let us run with patience the race that is set before us”. Be kind and patient to others and yourself. #sharegoodness#spreadlight#letsbebetter#forourselvesandeachother#atonement#jesuschrist#lds#humility#meekness#understansing#patience
Jesus said “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send YOU.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit. WHOSE SINS YOU FORGIVE ARE FORGIVEN THEM, AND WHOSE SINS YOU RETAIN ARE RETAINED.” #John20#JohnChapter20#Verse21#Verse22#Verse23#RUAH
“Time is holographic, yet the choices you make here ‘appear’ linear. That is the paradox of time. In terms of the homogram, it has already happened, but in your linear experience, you’ve still got to do it. But make the only real choice you can make: refuse to take the linear nature of time seriously. And so your path is to not be attached to the world. It is ok to live your life, but you believe less and less in its reality, hence the false world is gradually undone. And as it’s undone, it is naturally replaced with your experience of your true nature, which is eternal.” Pursah, Ascendant Master. #lovehasforgottennoone#atonement#pleiadianascension#lightworker#enlightenment#acim#worldofillusion#freespirit#eternallove#holiness

Watching what's going on rn, my heart shatters. The pain is palpable 💔 But so is the conviction that immediately follows. Even in the face of chaos, in the tumult of a million screams and polarized opinions, I see the battle is still the same. Faith versus fear, compassion versus ego, agency versus slavery. We're all in equal need of the redemption of Jesus Christ to make us whole. The choice begins with me. Here in this moment. I gotta be honest with myself and with God so I can be honest with my people. His light cuts through the smoke. His power emboldens me to get up and use my voice. To ask again and again "What would You have me do right now?"....then listen for the answer that ripples deep in the well. It always comes. And soon as it does, to get up and act without looking back.
Today is the 99th anniversary of an Oklahoma state tragedy: the Tulsa Race Massacre.
The massacre has seldom been taught in schools, even among Oklahomans. As educators, we inform. More people should know what happened in Tulsa a century ago.
So, we welcomed Tulsa Race Massacre expert and author of "Black Wall Street,” Hannibal Johnson. He spoke on how we, as Christians, should acknowledge our mistakes and restore our community post-tragedy. He emphasized the need to create tangible solutions.
"For me it's about acknowledgement, apology and atonement. We're only beginning to acknowledge lo these many years."
Join Hannibal Johnson, and many others, in creating a community focused on atonement and growth.
📩 En la película “Expiación, deseo y pecado” (“Atonement”) las cartas son causa y efecto de los destinos de los personajes del film. Una nota equivocada de pocas palabras incentiva la imaginación de una adolescente provocando un testimonio con un grado de convicción tan alto como el de la culpa que la perseguirá el resto de su vida, y que intentará expiar con una carta y muchas más palabras. 💌 La reseña completa en el link de la bio
Kabinett and Kammer. I took this photo on a beautiful day in November at the most wonderful shop. We stopped by while driving home from thanksgiving with my family in upstate NY. I have been so very upset, and so sad, the last few days... this image represents a moment of peace and beauty in a very difficult year. Looking at the photo of this amazing space is kinda like turning away, for just a moment, to breath...(lucky me, I get to breath...a privilege not awarded to George Floyd). I am praying earnestly for change and justice in this country that I still have faith can be healed... but not without deep awareness, commitment to change, love and true atonement. #blacklivesmatter#atonement#lovenotfear#light#justiceforgeorgefloyd#reflection#peace#justice@kabinettandkammer@aohazlett@mamaleanne22@katbirdfinn
This is a time for collective growth, as humanity as a whole....if we choose as individuals to do so, as the world faces a time of crisis .... it can bring the best within us or the worst... It's ultimately our choice ❤
Let's earn our right to be on this wonderful planet , we know as humanity we have to atone for much 🙌🙏, but we can start today!
Have a blessed Sunday 😊
Another one of my 'Come, Follow Me' inspired lessons is now available on my YouTube Channel 'The Stormin' Latter-Day Saint'! The 'Come, Follow Me' manual I use to teach these lessons was published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2020!
For my whole life, I've been dealing with lots of ups and downs, and these last month's were the lowest of them all. I've realized that making mistakes is part of living but I've punished myself too hard, every time a bit harder than the last. Through every process, music had the power to keep me from drowning and @killswitchengage has always proven to be the best medicine in those dark times. I want to share this tattoo inspired on the Atonement's art cover for the album, as a constant reminder of the fight that has to keep going, specially when we think we can't continue. All the my love and gratitude goes out to the band, I hope you keep inspiring others to keep the signal fire alight; and to everyone out there who has been there to help me. 🔥🔥🔥 #killswithengage#icantbetheonlyone#tattoo#ink#atonement#mentalhealth#music#liontattoo

Time for some #sundayinspiration !
I know that my Savior lived, died, and was resurrected. I know that He suffered for me and made it possible for me to be forgiven. I know that without Him in my life I would be lost. He truly gives me the strength to get through difficult times. He has blessed me with so much and I will forever be indebted to Him.

Filmatoryum ekibi olarak yeni bir konseptle karşınızdayız. Geçmişte yaşanan önemli olaylardan esinlenerek “tarihten ilhamla” farklı filmleri sizlerle buluşturuyoruz. Tarihte bugün 31 Mayıs 1859’da Londra’nın simgelerinden olan Big Ben ilk defa çalmış. Londra’da geçen sevdiğimiz filmlerden birkaçı bunlar. Sizin sevdiğiniz Londra lokasyonlu filmler neler? Yorumlara bekliyoruz 😊
#DarkestHour Gary Oldman’ı Winston Churchill olarak İkinci Dünya Savaşının sınırında bir İngiltere’de izliyoruz. Churchill belki de hayatının en zor ve en karanlık günlerini geçirirken filmdeki başarılı performansıyla En İyi Erkek Oyuncu Oscar’ı alan Oldman, Churchill’in en karanlık saatlerini izleyicilere gerçekten çok iyi hissettiriyor. Film Churchill’i anlattığından filmin de Londra’da geçtiğini tahmin etmek çok zor olmuyor 🙈
#Atonement Ian McEwan’ın aynı adlı romanından uyarlanan başrollerinde James McAvoy, Keira Knightley, Saoirse Ronan’ın oynadığı, bir ev halkının 60 yıllık acı, aşk, kıskançlık, yanlış anlaşılmalarla harmanlanmış hikayesini konu edinen bir film. Çocukluğun ve gençliğin pastel renkleriyle boyanmış bir İngiltere’de geçen film, zamanla ağır yaşanmışlıklarla grileşen, kısaca izleyiciyle Londra’nın her halini paylaşan, ekibimizin de kişisel favorilerinden.
#TheElephantMan 1880’lerin Londra’sında geçen, gerçek bir hikayeden uyarlama bir film. Doğuştan gelen ciddi deformasyonları nedeniyle Fil Adam olarak adlandırılan ve sirkte bir gösteri olarak sunulan John Merrick’in, ona yardım etmek isteyen bir doktor tarafından bulunmasının ardından yaşananları konu alıyor. David Lynch’in yönetmenliğini yaptığı, başrollerinde John Hurt ve Anthony Hopkins’in yer aldığı filmde oldukça ikonik, etkileyici ve iz bırakan sahneler yer alıyor.

Would you forgive me? There is a hole deep inside my chest that the regret of deceiving a soul
Keira Knightley, James Mcavoy, Saoirse Ronan, Benedict Cumberbatchden oluşan efsanevi bir oyuncu kadrosuna sahip Atonement, dönem filmlerinin efsanelerindendir. James Mcavoy oyunculuğunu bu filmde kesinlikle geliştirmiş. Arada yavaş ilerleyen bir film olmasına rağmen derinden etkiliyor. Bazı sahneleri, diyalogları hayatım boyunca asla unutmayacağım. Film severlerin özellikle görüntü yönetimini çok beğeneceğini düşünüyorum.

Some modern teachings dismiss the Feasts of the Lord as something only for the Jews, irrelevant because of the New Covenant, or impossible to keep unless you're in Jerusalem. However, forsaking any effort to understand them is to forsake knowledge of Christ and His imminent return. The Feasts of the LORD, provide us clues as to when He will return. In this passage THREE High Days are referenced, culminating with the true #Israelites returning to their land.

It took ages to see a full headliner show from one of the best, if not the best metalcore band out there. What a fantastic setlist, I have no complaints. Jesse: you rule! Much respect to you! Adam D was hilarious as expected. The song My Curse takes me back many years ago, sweet sweet nostalgia. Such a important song for me. Only letdown: this awful Holy Diver cover. Never understood the appeal for it.
Check them out, if you can!
—Я всячески сопротивлялся ей, когда она появилась в моей жизни.
Я пытался с ней играть, стараясь относиться к этому несерьезно, но играл так увлечённо, что пропустил тот момент, когда она прочно вросла мне под кожу.
Когда я подходил к ней ближе, всем своим телом ощущая ее дыхание, меня рикошетом отбрасывало обратно.
Я понимал, что она тихий омут, понимал, что внутри неё столько подводных камней, что их хватит для строительства Великой Китайской стены. «только бы не утонуть в ней» - думал я ..будучи уже на дне.🖤
