I loved how he reminded me that we have been prepared for all of this before we were born. The trick really is to remember what we learned before.
God calls the weak and the simple and then strengthens them for the work. As a parent, I couldn't feel anymore weak and simple. Most days I don't feel like He is really making me stronger. I still feel weak as a parent, making mistake after and mistake and failing miserably at teaching my children the gospel and persuading them to follow Christ. I guess that is where faith and hope comes into play. Something and someone else will have to step in and make up the difference.
Still, I strive to "be an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit in faith, in purity." The key word being strive. Sadly, I fall short of always setting that example of being a believer most days... but I give it my best shot and I feel that i am getting better and better each day as I try.
I loved the question, "Is there something more I can do...?" Most days I'm too tired to ask it... but I know that I should try harder to end my day by asking this question daily. "God will magnify [my] strength and [my] wisdom."
