Latter-day Saint Voices:

“Lord, Here Am I”

One of the great adventures of life is discovering the joy that comes from selfless service. Indeed, to a large degree, our willingness to be of service to God and our fellow beings labels us as disciples of Jesus Christ. President Thomas S. Monson, First Counselor in the First Presidency, explains: “Like a golden thread woven through the tapestry of life is the message on the label of a humble heart. It was true of the boy Samuel; it was the experience of Jesus. … May it ever be the label which identifies each of us: ‘Lord, here am I’ [see 1 Sam. 3:3–10; Abr. 3:27]” (“Labels,” Liahona, September 2000, 7). The stories that follow illustrate the discipleship of members who have said to the Lord, “Here am I.”
