Be grateful

Be smart

Be clean

Be true

Be humble

Be prayerful

Be positive

Be still

Be involved

 - Gordon B. Hinckley

 

I love these instructions of the Way to Be! from President Gordon B. Hinckley, who was a beloved prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 12 years. 

In his book Way to Be!, he dedicates it to “a generation of young people who will rise to meet the exciting opportunities of a new and challenging day.”  I love that message!  I work with the youth at our church and this generation of young people are facing and will continue to face opposition like no other time.  They see, hear, and are exposed to evil at such a younger age and acceptance to disregard any and all values is everywhere.  The next generation will rise up.  I know that is true.  But, in order for them to rise, they need to ‘be’ ready.  I am grateful for wonderful church leaders that help lead and instruct us on how to rise up and be ready for each “new and challenging day.”
