Pic via: the kitchen table! We're home! I'll be sharing the last of our NYC trip tomorrow here - today was spent Sunday'ing with my crew. This morning I was surrounded by Shopkins sticker books as I studied and, of course, two little girls that are happy to be in their own spaces again. Feels good to be back at life in the Honey House.
Entry from Saturday, January 7
"But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right."

That "burning bosom" is literal warmth, as well as a feeling of energy and power and excitement to act on the answer you're getting. That "burning" is an answer to your prayer. I know that feeling. 

"Oliver Cowdery was taught another way in which positive answers come. 'Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter?' (D&C 6:23) The feeling of peace is the most common confirming witness that I personally experience." - *Elder Richard G. Scott

That peace is a settled mind. I see myself saying, 'Okay I feel about this or that' when that feeling of peace comes as my answer. No aspect of the matter remains concerning, nothing feels unsettled. I feel peace. 

I need this lesson right now, as I'm needing an answer on a couple matters. Grateful to know that I am heard and will be answered - just have to learn (and re-learn and re-learn 😊) how to recognize His response.

*That second paragraph in my study from Elder Scott was found here in this super short clip. I found it on LDS.org after searching "getting answers to your prayers." It is what led me to re-read and ponder D&C 9, actually, and coupling his personal testimony about the peacefulness with receiving answers with what the Lord teaches Oliver Cowdery clearly helped me a lot. It always does. I love this lesson when I need to an answer from heaven!
