Parenting: Touching the Hearts of Our Youth

I know for a while now I have not been "there". With my ever daily battles with my physical body and health, I HAVE BECOME DISCONNTED IN SO MANY WAYS. Lost and lonely I would have to say have been the feelings I have been feeling lately. I know I need to do better, this was a great reminder.

"When suffering, we may in fact be nearer to God than we’ve ever been in our entire lives. That knowledge can turn every such situation into a would-be temple.

Regarding our earthly journey, the Lord has promised, “I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up” (D&C 84:88). That is an everlasting declaration of God’s love and care for us, including—and perhaps especially—in times of trouble."
