Through word and music, this series of classes will focus on the healing power of the Savior and His Atonement. "Jesus Christ maketh thee whole" (Acts 9:34), and only through and with Christ can we find true healing. President Gordon B. Hinckley said, "I testify of Him who is the great source of healing. He is the Son of God, the Redeemer of the world, "The Sun of Righteousness," who came with healing in his wings." (President Gordon B. Hinckley, "The Healing Power of Christ," General Conference, October 1988

God sees you not only as a mortal being on a small planet who lives for a brief season-He sees you as His child. He sees you as the being you are capable and designed to become.
