Your Once upon a Time Is Now

Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Second Counselor in the First Presidency


Dieter F. Uchtdorf

For a moment, think back about your favorite fairy tale. In that story the main character … must overcome adversity. …

… You will experience your own adversity. …

It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop. …

… Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your “once upon a time” is now.

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “Your Happily Ever After,” Ensign, May 2010, 124–27.
