“The Lord's tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ” - Elder David A. Bednar

My husband and I had just moved into a new apartment that had washer/dryer hookups on a Saturday! Yay! And we were expecting our first child in a couple months. We had been working regularly, built a small savings, and had the money to buy a washer and dryer!

On Sunday, we went to church and saw a family that was in our ward previously, that had moved a month before us. The first thing that Larry asked us when greeting us was “do you by chance need a washer and dryer? The house we moved into came with a set, but we already have some”.

I was flabbergasted! Yes--we needed them! But we could have paid for them! This is the benefit of paying tithing.
