ENDURANCE

Be a Modern Day Pioneer
1 Nephi 3:7 *Mom=my favorite pioneer J
We all need our own pioneer story
·        Our trials are custom fit to who we are
·        Remember who God wants you to be!
·        Ether 12:6 = We need our trials

MY THREE STEPS FOR GROWTH

1.      Trust in God—the way we approach trials and hard experiences will differ—but one thing should always remain the same—trust in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Alma 36:3
·        Understand the Plan
·        Remember they love you

2.      Respond in Faith
·        Ask: what can I learn? Who can I help? How can I remember my blessings?
·        Keep reading
·        Keep praying
·        Seek His word and wisdom
·        Act on your knowledge

3.      Find peace and joy in trials
·        Mosiah 24:13-14
·        Endurance—2 Nephi 31:20—Steadfastness, “walking with God”, like angels with the pioneers, we can get help and be strong!


He wants us to be AMAZING!!!
