My people must be tried in all things, that they may be prepared to receive the glory that I have for them, even the glory of Zion; and he that will not bear chastisement is not worthy of my kingdom. —Doctrine and Covenants 136:31
The Lord knows the way because He is the way and is our only chance for successfully negotiating mortality. His Atonement makes available all of the power, peace, light, and strength that we need to deal with life’s challenges–those ranging from our own mistakes and sins to trials over which we have no control but we still feel pain. —Sheri L. Dew
