“I can’t believe I said that. Where did that come from?” If we’re not careful, our emotions can shape our actions much more than we want them to. But monitoring our behavior isn't enough.

Whether you're a parent or not, whether your relationship with your parents is amazing or not-so-close, the great news is that we can all receive a blessing from our Heavenly Father that has the power to change everything – for us and for those that come after us.
Jesus’ ministry only lasted a few years, but shaped the history of humanity like no one before or after him. In this 6-part series, take a journey through the life of Jesus and look at significant places and events along the way.
