    Dear “Talentless,”

    Did you know God gave everyone special gifts and talents? Including you! (See Doctrine and Covenants 46:11.) You’re not talentless at all. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what our talents are. That’s OK. Just keep trying to use your gifts to help others. With Heavenly Father’s help, you can even gain new talents. He made you a truly special person, and you do amazing things!

    Never forget that,
