I am a Mormon. You probably have heard of us–but what you may have heard may or may not be accurate. You can learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by visiting mormon.org. I also recommend checking out the movie Meet the Mormons.
Anyway, this is relevant because I attended and graduated from BYU (you can go to BYU even if you aren’t Mormon) GO COUGARS!.
Every Tuesday BYU has either a Devotional or a Forum where a wide-range of speakers are invited to address the attendees. You can access most of the devotionals or forums at speeches.byu.edu.
One of these devotionals was given by Johnathan G. Sandberg, a professor in the Department of Family Life at BYU. The devotional was entitled Healing=Courage+Action+Grace . It has become one of my favorite references.
Free Personal Growth Quote
My favorite part of the talk was this line, “My Savior Cares More About My Growth Than He Cares About My Comfort.” So, I made a printable quote to frame in my home. I thought I would share it with you! Think about it! Our natural state is to seek comfort. Feeling uncomfortable is something we as human beings try to avoid. But, most, if not all, growth comes from uncomfortable, stretching experiences and situations.
