We had only been in Boston for two weeks when Elder Marlin Jensen, our Area President, came to do a mission tour. He asked me how I was doing....and I started to cry. After he returned to Salt Lake, he mailed me a copy of this quote. I have loved it ever since. It gave me a different perspective on the challenging adjustment our whole family was facing. And it answered that unanswerable question we usually ask when we are going through hard things: WHY? During those first few days at the MTC when life feels so painful in many ways for my sons, I always send them this quote. I hope it will do for them what it did for me.

  1. Awesome! Thank you for sharing. I'd never heard this before. I'm a new missionary mom, but I have six sons and three daughters so I want to learn from those with more wisdom! Thank you!
