In a digital devotional for students of Brigham Young University – Pathway Worldwide, Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf offered a powerful reminder that we are all the heroes of our own stories.
“Whether you feel like a hero or not, you are one! You are the hero of your own life’s story!” Elder Uchtdorf shared. “Do not be discouraged. Do not give up. The future is bright! Someday you will look back on the person you are now with kindness and compassion, and you will know then that the steps you took today molded you into the wonderful person you have yet to become.”
“We live in times where the pages of history are anything but empty. COVID-19 is forcing us to find and use different ways of communication.”
Because most of the learning for BYU-Pathway happens at home over the Internet, “I am pleased to say the Church’s Pathway program is way ahead of its time,” he said.
Still, some may wonder if their dreams will ever become reality. “I understand what you are feeling,” he said.
