4 Spiritual Survival Tips Inspired By the Last 4 Months

Lindsey Williams, a writer at LDS Living, shared some inspiring tips about how we can spiritually survive during these turbulent times. Here is an excerpt from her article and where you can read more.

If you’re like me, you have probably had someone tell you recently—or perhaps you have said it yourself—that 2020 has been a total wash. Just look at some of the major events of this year: devastating wildfires in Australia, the eruption of the Taal Volcano in the Philippines, the third impeachment trial in US history, the killing of George Floyd, a 7.5-magnitude earthquake in Oaxaca, Mexico, and of course, the COVID-19 pandemic. As Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said in April 2020 conference, COVID-19 is “a solemn reminder that a virus 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand can bring entire populations and global economies to their knees.”

But the effects of the pandemic are not only seen in the number of cases or the tragic loss of lives. The mental, social, and spiritual effects cannot be underestimated.

The year 2020 likely won’t be one that pops up in my Facebook memories with glorious travel pictures or awesome hangouts, but I think 2020 will be memorable for a different reason—how I’ve focused more on hearing the voice of the Savior during “a scene of great confusion and bad feeling.”

Here are four lessons I’ve learned in the last few months about spiritual survival in tumultuous 2020.
