A Sweet "Come Follow Me" Story

On a cold October morning in 2021, my youngest child, affectionately known by friends and family as “Squishy,” followed me everywhere I went.

I walked into the kitchen; he walked into the kitchen. I went into the bathroom to comb Little J's hair; he followed me into the bathroom. I took the trash out, and he trailed after me, barefoot, into the cold.

After nearly stepping on his tiny feet, I asked him what he was doing. His answer stopped me in my tracks.

"I'm stepping in your footsteps because I love you."

My thoughts instantly traveled across sand and seas, and transported me to the moment when our Savior, so lovingly, bid His disciples, "Come, follow me."

I pray that we learn from this small child's wise words and follow in The Savior’s footsteps because of our deep LOVE for Him.
