      Spiritual Preparedness

      In October 2005, then Elder Henry B Eyring, member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaimed, “So, the great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God’s commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage. And the tragedy of life is to fail in that test and so fail to qualify to return in glory to our heavenly home.”
