Discussion Ideas

  • “Pillars of Truth,” page 2: President Gordon B. Hinckley identifies seven eternal, unchanging truths. How can each of these pillars of truth support and sustain you in this constantly changing world?

  • “Learning to Serve,” page 10: Elder L. Tom Perry teaches that we must learn before we can serve. What knowledge is most important for us to learn? How can acquiring this knowledge help us serve effectively?

  • “When Life Gets Tough,” page 28: Elder John B. Dickson makes the surprising statement that losing his right arm at age 19 was not tragic; it turned out to be a great blessing in his life. Discuss something you have had to give up, only to discover later that the sacrifice has made you stronger and more capable.

  • “Stay in the Boat,” page F2: Relate Elder Russell M. Nelson’s story about his daughter who wanted to get out of the boat in the middle of the lake. What does it mean to “stay in the boat” until we reach the shore?
