Priesthood Blessings

The kids start back to school this week. We had our FHE tonight about priesthood blessings, then everyone received a priesthood blessing from either Tyler or my brother, Evan. It was a very special experience seeing my children being blessed Tyler, seeing Tyler bless Evan, and seeing Evan bless Shelbee and Tyler. Tyler blessed me, also. I wasn't seeking anything particular in the blessing - just wanting to hear what Heavenly Father wanted to say to me. Heavenly Father blessed me in my physical difficulties and limitations due to my weight and that I would be able to meet my family's emotional needs - which are very important. Then the last part was a surprise to me - Heavenly Father blessed me that I will be blessed with the desire of my heart, to have more children. I was overcome with joy. We just fasted about this topic last week! I am grateful for the blessings that God gives to me and my family. :D

Blessings are truly a way the Lord gifts us. I can't imagine a life without the sweet feelings and answers blessings bring me.

Uh, how does that work? How do you know you will be blessed with more children? Does the Priesthood have a direct line to God, or what?

Oh wow... how wonderful! I believe in the power of priesthood. It's been such a blessing in my life to receive blessings, and to witness them come to pass. I'm so happy for you Jill. Each child who comes to your home is truly privileged. xoxo

Hi Jeb,

Thanks for your question. Yes, a priesthood blessing is given by someone who has the authority from God using the priesthood of God. The words that are spoken are what God wants to be spoken. Here is a website with more information: http://mormon.org/searchResults?theme=blue&query=priesthood+blessings
