Church leaders took to social media the week of Aug. 21-26 to share trials they have undergone and how they rely on the Savior through it all.

As Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles welcomed the First Lady of Gambia to Utah on Aug. 19 via Twitter, he reflected on his time in Gambia in February, earlier this year.

He tweeted, “They gave us a warm reception and we were grateful for their commitment to religious freedom,” along with an expression of his gratitude for their growing relationship.

On Aug. 24, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Young Women General President Bonnie H. Cordon posted on Facebook a new #HearHim video of President Cordon sharing her personal experience with overcoming difficulty.

When her grandson passed away, she was able to gain a better understanding of trusting in the Savior. She said, “But difficult, even heart-wrenching, experiences throughout my life have taught me an important lesson: the Lord knows me personally.”

“What motivates you? What motivated the Savior? It is LOVE!” said Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson. In her Aug. 21 Facebook post, she explained how love is the ultimate incentive, helping individuals to follow Christ.

On Facebook, Sister Rebecca L. Craven, second counselor in the Young Women general presidency, posted on Aug. 23 about scripture study and how she goes about a meaningful study of her Savior.

“That day I ditched the color-coded pencils and went for my favorite black pen. I was going to read just to know Him, to love Him, and nothing else mattered,” she wrote. She said that while her scriptures may seem unorganized, she understands that the Lord loves effort.

On Aug. 25, Brother Bradley R. Wilcox, second counselor in the Young Men general presidency, shared a Facebook post about an experience a son and father had following a For the Strength of Youth conference.

Father of Josh and friend of Brother Wilcox, Dan said of his son, “‘Josh loved his FSY experience, but he also brought it home with him.’”

On Facebook on Aug. 25, Sister Michelle D. Craig, first counselor in the Young Women general presidency, wrote about spiritual promptings. She said, “I want to show the Lord that I am willing, that I am seeking direction and trying to increase my ability to seek for and then act on personal revelation.”

Sister Craig provided four ways to increase spiritual capacity to receive revelation.
