“Sadness, disappointment, and severe challenge are events 

in life, not life itself. I do not minimize how hard some of 

these events are. They can extend over a long period of 

time, but they should not be allowed to become the 

confining center of everything you do. The Lord inspired 

Lehi to declare the fundamental truth, “Men are, that they 

might have joy.” That is a conditional statement: “they might 

have joy.” It is not conditional for the Lord. His intent is that 

each of us finds joy. It will not be conditional for you as you 

obey the commandments, have faith in the Master, and do 

the things that are necessary to have joy here on earth.”

Comfort and Confidence

“The Lord gives us a spirit of hope and a feeling of comfort and confidence that we can overcome the obstacles we face. He has shown the way to gain strength during our struggles. With His assistance, we have the ability to succeed. Listen to His words of counsel and comfort: 'Fear not, little children, for you are mine, and I have overcome the world and none of them that my Father hath given me shall be lost.”

Giving Thanks!

“The heart that gives thanks is a happy one, 

for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at 

the same time.

The more we say thanks, the more we find to

 be thankful for.

And the more we find to be thankful for,

the happier we become.

We don't give thanks because we're happy.

We are happy because we give thanks.”

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment 

less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be

better, we can bear a hardship today.”
