A Pearl from Elder Holland

Tonight for FHE we watched the CES Broadcast from last night, featuring Elder Holland. He spoke about how we all must be sentenced to a period of time in Liberty Jail, and this comes from a loving Heavenly Father.  We've heard it all before but he makes it sound so...so...surrenderingly wonderful!  I think my favorite line of the evening was

Man's extremity is God's opportunity.

Makes the trials which come to us all seem like we hit the proverbial jackpot.

Just look at him as a young buck!
