Perspective. Powerful. Peace.

I don't usually share this kind of thing in this forum but this was too good to keep to myself.

I admit that I've had the thought of "thank GOODNESS that I'm not married because I just don't know if I could bring children into this really scary world." Maybe I'm not alone in this thinking.

As the calamities and evil of this world seem to grow in frequency and intensity, I find it hard to have that faith over fear. I am weak.

I know its not by coincidence that I came across the transcript of a message from one of my faith's leaders on how to cope, live and love to live in these perilous times of the last days.

For those of you not of my faith, there is so much for you in this article if you have beliefs in the Savior, as well as the revelations of the Bible.

Its a long read but well worth your time. I found the PERSPECTIVE that I lacked. The message was POWERFUL and brought PEACE to my troubled soul.

Heaven knows we are all in this together and we all could use a little something. I hope you find something in it for you as I did.

I thought a lot about this post when I read it, but at the time could not put my thoughts into words. I found it surprising to realize that since I was married (or at least since I actually did start bringing them here) I have not had the fear you express of bringing children into this scary world. I wondered why. It just doesn't seem so terrifying anymore. I certainly had that concern before having kids. But now life is just life and I do my best to teach my kids the way things should be. I read an excerpt from a talk by Pres. Boyd K. Packer today (here: I think he puts it very well (as does the blog author). I haven't read the article by Elder Holland. Maybe I will now, but I wanted to share my thoughts.

Do you hate the world or something?
