    Living the Gospel brings me hope because the Restoration is ongoing. This is a living, breathing Church. I feel happy to know that we're learning and receiving more revelation on challenging topics like LGBTQ issues, mental health, and how to treat ourselves and others. We're currently working through difficult chapters in our Church culture and in the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but I have a strong hope that the best is yet to come!

    How can I continue to find purpose after I return from my mission?

    The gospel brings me hope because Christ is the center, and He consistently reminds me of my worth. Christ meets me where I am and gently encourages me to do better. I feel increased faith and optimism when I pray and read the scriptures. Every Sunday I'm shocked at the intensity the Spirit speaks to me. I consistently leave uplifted.

    The words, "climate change", have never been mentioned in an official Church publication. In my discussions with both younger and older members of the Church, there is discord (even among Church leadership) regarding what are our responsibilities as members of the Church in combating climate change. Could you please address this topic more fully?

    The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope because it is eternal. Although there will be adjustments in policy, the mission of the church, the promises God makes to us, the hope we have in Christ will not change. This world is a temporal world. Even the most beautiful and noble things of this world will fade, fracture, and die. That can be really hard to deal with. Sometimes it can be almost too much to bear. The promise of Jesus Christ is that because he died a temporal death for us, some things can be eternal: eternal life, eternal exaltation, eternal family, the eternal love and mercy of an Eternal Father and an Eternal Savior. And knowing that gives me hope as I deal with the imperfections and losses of a temporal world. These things won't last forever. The gospel of Jesus Christ and all that accompanies it will. #LDSDevo

    I have been patiently awaiting my mission call for many months now. Long before submitting my paperwork, there was so much more than physical preparedness that I really struggled through. Although I have received confirmations from Heavenly Father that everything will work out, I am still unsure of things. How can I know when or if I am prepared enough to receive my mission call and be a servant to the Lord as a missionary?

    Living the gospel brings me hope because I have seen and experienced answers to prayers, received personal revelation, have been healed through the power off the priesthood and have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that this church is true. When times are hard and I feel lost. I hold on to what I know and hope.

    Living the Gospel brings me hope because — I believe that all trials, regardless of their “source”, carry with them a “seed of equivalent benefit” and that by applying the Atonement/Gospel I water that seed until it becomes an asset to my life’s work (proving myself to God) and to my testimony. I know that Christ’s work WILL succeed. His ship WILL NOT sink, and if I stand with him I cannot fail. We are on the same team. Nothing under heaven can stop our team from achieving eternal life and experiencing joy in the present. Because of the Gospel I can choose this kind of peaceful life even in the face of sometimes terrible opposition.

    I have family members that are part of the LGBT community. Several times i have been prompted to give advice to reach out to heavenly father during their times of trials and tribulations. How do i do that without making one feel uncomfortable or without offending them?

    The gospel brings me hope because... It teaches me that I can make it through every hard thing and still be filled with joy because of Jesus’s Christ!

    I know serving a mission was part of the Lords plan for me. But it has been just over a year and I still find myself unadjusted at times and facing mental challenges I did not have before. How can I make the most out of my mission experiences, especially the difficult ones?
