Strengthened in My Youth

Knowing my For the Strength of Youth booklet from cover to cover is one thing, but keeping the standards from cover to cover is something else entirely. For me, upholding the standards has been a physical and emotional roller coaster.

There have been times when I have been tempted by the adversary, and it is only through faith in our Savior, promptings from the Holy Ghost, and my loving family members and friends that I have been strengthened in my youth.

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are examples to others, but most important, we are servants of the Lord. The things our Heavenly Father asks us to do in For the Strength of Youth are not easy, but we must try our best to not waver in the fight against temptation. If you stay faithful to our Savior, you too can be strengthened in your youth!
