Using Agency and Revelation to Make Life Decisions

Throughout my life, I have always been able to rely on the promise that God would hear and answer my prayers. Over and over again, I experienced the reassuring feeling of peace that the decisions I was making in my life were in line with the plan God had in mind for me. I knew what it felt like to receive an answer to my prayers, and I felt complete confidence in my decisions as a result.

Ask, Seek, Knock

Today’s technology also allows us to use wireless telephones to exchange information rapidly. Recently Wendy and I were on assignment on another continent when we learned that a new baby had arrived in our family. We received the good news minutes after that birth had occurred half a world away.

We Are More Than Our Labels

I am the oldest child of 5 siblings.  Among us, I am the most different, and the older I grew, the more I noticed these differences.  The labels that were passed on to me felt unfair because I knew I was more than what people would call me.  I will admit that it did bother me some...OK, a lot, but when I came to realize that I am a child of a loving Father in Heaven, I learned that it is alright to be different.  I love myself just the way that I am, with all my differences, and I celebrate them because I have my own individual divine qualities and talents that I've been blessed with.  I'm sure we can all relate to the stories below.

Failure Is Part of the Plan
