Apostle Says Persistence Brings Success in Life’s Journey

Obstacles, delays and mistakes will challenge you through life’s journey, explained Elder Neil L. Andersen, a member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Do not dismiss nor diminish the specific role and responsibility that has been given you,” Elder Andersen said. “You can shape who you become. You can be more than you are today, but you will always be you.”

Elder Andersen spoke Sunday, 10 January, to an audience of college-age young adults during a Church broadcast from the BYU campus in Provo, Utah. He encouraged them to be the captain of their spiritual destiny.
