"Life's journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls, and snares. Rather, it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us. To make them wisely, courage is needed: the courage to say, 'No,' the courage to say, 'Yes.' Decisions do determine destiny. The call for courage comes constantly to each of us. It has ever been so, and so shall it ever be."
--Thomas S. Monson, "The Call for Courage," Ensign, May 2004, 54
We never know what our journey will bring. We have to follow the Lords path and plans.We have to make decisions on important principles before the decision is before us. I was talking to a young girl who was telling me about a boy she is dating. I of course said I'm going to ask you the difficult question? Is he a member? She said no but he is a good guy. That's a tough one. I know where my heart is and what I think is the right thing to do.....but how does your life experiences help someone make a wise choice.
