"There are those among you who, although young, 
have already suffered a full measure of grief and sorrow. 
My heart is filled with compassion and love for you. 
How dear you are to the Church. 
How beloved you are of your Heavenly Father. 
Though it may seem that you are alone, angels attend you. 
Though you may feel that no one can understand the depth of your despair, 
our Savior, Jesus Christ, understands. 
He suffered more than we can possibly imagine, 
and He did it for us; 
He did it for you. 
You are not alone.

If you ever feel your burden is too great to bear,
lift your heart to your Heavenly Father,
and He will uphold and bless you.
He says to you, as He said to Joseph Smith,
'[Your] adversity and [your] afflictions shall be but a small moment;
and then, if [you] endure it well,
God shall exalt [you] on high'...

'Happily ever after'
is not something found only in fairy tales.
You can have it!
It is available for you!
But you must follow your Heavenly Father’s map."

--Your Happily Ever After Dieter F. Uchtdorf

  1. I love this talk! On my mission we had it on CD and would listen to it periodically while driving around to appointments.
