Having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God, therefore I make a record of my proceedings in my days.

And I know that the record which i make is true; and I make it with mine own hand; and I make it according to my knowledge.

Though our lives are different, we can each expect to face challenges and to encounter disappointment and even disillusionment. Where are the answers to our challenges and concerns to be found?

Sister Mary Ellen W. Smoot, Relief Society general president, has declared that “in this monumental time in history … , everyone wants to find answers that will make a difference in their lives. As Relief Society sisters, we can help all of God’s children to see that answers are found where they always have been: in scriptures, in prophets’ teachings, and in obedience to both” (Sweet Is the Work [2000], 56).

Indeed, help with our challenges, our worries, our everyday problems, and our concerns can be found in obedience to teachings of prophets ancient and modern. Is it any wonder, then, that Nephi read the writings of Isaiah to his family? “I did liken all scriptures unto us, that it might be for our profit and learning,” he explained (1 Ne. 19:23). Because there is safety in likening teachings of prophets unto ourselves, we, the Relief Society general presidency, desire all sisters in the Church to prayerfully search the scriptures and the counsel of latter-day leaders and to apply those truths in their lives.

Today, if you're experiencing some trials, let me give you a few questions that you can ask yourself. If you'll begin to do this, you can prepare now for what will be a lifetime of various kinds of trials. Ask yourself a question: Am I trying to do what the Lord would have me do, if you're not then you need to adjust your course. But, if you are, and you're under trials, would you please always remember a picture? and the picure I'd like to have you remember is of a boy outside the walls of a city, who turned to his brothers and said, I'll go ahead, because I know that God gives no commandments unto the children of men save he prepares a way.

Now I bear you my testimony that there will always be a way for you to escape from the trials that will be given if you understand two things: One is, you need to be on the Lord's errand and secondly, the escape will almost never be out of the trial, it will be through it. If you pray to escape it you may not find the way prepared for you; you need to pray to find the way of deliverance through it.
