Today I was reading Elder Ballard's most recent conference address, Return & Receive. It is so good and reminded me of one of my favorite BYU speeches by Elder Holland about the greatest dispensation. I've learned (probably the hard and long way lol) that we are NOT victims of our circumstances and in every way imaginable we are meant to be agents who act not objects who are acted upon. This seems like basic doctrine, but every time I study it I learn more and more.
Get busy making plans for a bright future with Heavenly Father! As President Hinckley taught, "get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work." Apply the atonement of Jesus Christ and watch your life truly unfold. And read those talks by Elder Ballard & Elder Holland for inspiration and guidance!
