Enduring Struggles

When a situation arises whether it is adult rivalry, your boss telling you that you need to work hard, or a child miss behaving at home, we all at some point in our lives have these struggles. But...what do we say, what do we do, and how do we feel? Some of the times we exploded to the point of physical and or mentally harming ourselves and or others.

In a speech called “Big Issues” of Faith, Family, Religious Freedom, Elder Jeffery R. Holland says, “Regarding religious freedom, it’s important to give faith the freedom to flourish, because humans have both the ability and the responsibility to make choices with the hope — indeed, the confidence — that we will ultimately choose that which benefits the individual and the larger society in which those individuals live.

Faith, family and freedom are big issues inextricably linked with the hope and promise of democracy. And they are intertwined, interlinked, and interlocked so tightly that when one of them is struck, the other two are damaged; so that when one of them is cut, the other two will bleed.”

I suggest you all to watch and deeply ponder this video, then apply these things to your own lives and also strive to do the righteous things advised.
