Favorite Quote

I have to share my all time favorite quote. My dad showed it to me a few years back and I have loved it ever since: "The gospel of Jesus Christ is not insurance against pain; it is resource in the event of pain." I have so many thoughts on this quote and so many experiences. But I won't share them here. You go think about it. And if you feel so inclined, please do share with me what you took from it through email at eenicoll17@gmail.com. I would love to be inspired by you.

If you could buy insurance against pain, I think the price would be totally unaffordable anyway.

Emily,
Thank you so much for sharing this quote. It has been on my mind since I read it on your blog. I googled it and found it was part of a talk at a BYU Women's Conference by Carlfred Broderick, and published in a short book, "The Uses of Adversity." I just borrow it from the library, and I wanted to let you know it was fabulous! It was a super short, easy read, and well worth it!
I just wanted to share.
I enjoy reading your thoughts and feelings. Thanks for sharing.
I think you're awesome!
