One thing is for sure: if we look at our temporal decisions with a spiritual perspective, we will more readily adapt to the challenges we face. This doesn’t mean that we just expect our Father in Heaven to ease us through life. We have to do our part. The “Find a Better Job” course provides a meaningful way to take action. Based on input from successful employers, the course teaches practical skills and helps class members learn how to identify potential career opportunities.

As we follow Tamisha’s example by working hard to do our part, participating in class, practicing new skills, and going to Heavenly Father often, we too will find ourselves moving forward.
