Cherish Your Burdens

Mom’s wisdom:

Cherish your spiritual burdens because God will converse with you through them and will use you to do his work if you carry them well.

Jeffrey R. Holland, from a talk given at BYU, February 2, 1982

    Amazing! What an amazing talk! If anyone wondered why he was called to be an apostle– there is your answer.
    Thank you for shaing this talk with us! I have so much I could share about myself and how this talk has affected me, but I’d probably go on way tooo long. Thank you Allison.

    I found this quote in Dallin Oaks’ _With Full Purpose of Heart_ : “Our needed conversions are often achieved more readily by suffering and adversity than by comfort and tranquility….” So, a testimony relies on suffering, on burdens.

    I never realized that true *conversion* requires crap to happen to us, but I suppose I always knew that, really.
