As a stake Young Women president, decade-long youth leader, and parent of three teenagers, I felt an urgent responsibility to find the answers to their questions. I felt I needed to find a better way to prepare my daughters for a future that can be bright, but unpredictable. How can we prepare to be consistently faithful? Nephi was tried and faithful from a young age, so was Mary, Daniel, Esther and Mormon. What did they know? How did they do what they did? I have been looking for answers to these questions so I can help my children and yours.
I’ve learned that spiritual resilience is what helps us consistently turn to our Savior while facing the weight of struggle, doubt, and sin. Each time we put our trust in Christ we will find that our reliance on Him is justified. He is lifting us, supporting us, and teaching us in personally relevant ways, line upon line. He is preparing us for greater spiritual reach by adding layers on top of our steadfast and immovable foundation. He will provide the knowledge how we need it, when we need it, when we ask for it, and when we take the steps to be worthy to receive it.
