Our lives are going to be filled with the ups and downs as we venture through it. All of us have dealt with, or will deal with sadness, sorrow, despair, and those downs of life. How can we rise above those times and find understanding in those moments? I believe an understanding of who we are and why we are here allows us to have the HOPE necessary to continue on…. In today’s short clip President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, shares how hope encourages and inspires us to place our trust in the loving care of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I believe we are here to learn and grow and find happiness along the way. But along the way we will also grow through our trials necessary for our growth. In those trying times never lose hope. Know that you are loved and there is a plan for you in the big scheme of things.
