    God Lightens Burdens

    Just as the Lord told Alma’s people that He would “ease the burdens which [were] put upon [their] shoulders” (Mosiah 24:14), He can do the same for us as we reach out to Him.

    • Strengthened by Rocks.” This New Era article offers an interesting analogy to help us understand how trials can strengthen us and how “we will never have a trial or a challenge that we are unable to bear with His help.”

    • What Can We Do When Hard Things Happen to Us?” This child-friendly message from Elder Robert D. Hales (1932–2017) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles teaches how the Lord can help us endure our trials.
