There are numerous approaches to know for yourself that Heavenly Father lives and cherishes you. You can:
1. Address Him through petition and approach Him for consolation and love (Bible, James 1:5).
2. Peruse the declarations of uncommon observers called witnesses and prophets. They have had extraordinary and one of a kind encounters with God and have recorded these encounters in books for others to peruse and consider. These books are called sacred texts, and they incorporate the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon (Bible, 2 Timothy 3:14-17).
3. Keep God’s precepts, which carry you closer to Him and help you realize that He lives (Bible, John 14:21-23).
