In the midst of trials and trouble and heartbreak, I find it comforting to remember that I chose this life. We all did. We knew the hardships that we would face and the tests we would have to endure. Yet we faithfully sustained our Heavenly Father’s plan and elected to come to earth. We knew from the start that, if we stayed true to and relied on our Savior, the blessings and joy of enduring would far outweigh all costs.
