We also had the chance to hear President Uchtdorf speak at a devotional for Pioneer Day. It was so exciting to be in his presence. He spoke about the pioneers and their journey across the plains. He asked, "What have we done as a result of the sacrifice of the pioneers? Will their sacrifice and endurance have made a difference in our lives?" We should be so grateful for the sacrifice of our ancestors. They have made our lives possible. He encouraged us to be filled with passion, industry, and faith. It reminded me of a talk I read recently called Mountains to Climb by President Henry B. Eyring, and he said "If the foundation of faith is not embedded in our hearts, the power to endure will crumble." We must trust in our Savior to make things possible. We must believe in our Father in Heaven to have hope for the future.
I know that Jesus loves me, I know that He lives. I know that He wants to forgive, that He wants to help me. And He wants all of those things for each of you as well!
I love you all! Keep smiling!
