Prepare Our Children For Life’s Tests
September 23, 2018

This Life Is A Test

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

2 Nephi 2:21

"their state became a state of probation,...."

How can we help our children understand this and prepare them?

As parents, we need to set the example. Our children should see us live our faith and be accountable to God. This will help them also be accountable to God. Somehow, we must do all we can to keep our children from being attached to the world, and if it happens to break them free.

“Discipleship requires our willingness to swim upstream when needed. No one else is responsible for your personal journey. The Savior will help you and prepare the way before you, but the commitment to follow Him and keep His commandments must come from you. This is your sole burden, your sole privilege.” President Uchtdorf.

How can we help our children take responsibility for their life, especially for their spiritual life?

Convert them to the Lord. The Holy Ghost is the only way conversion will happen. Children who are converted will feel accountable to God and exercise their agency.

Part of our probation is to see if we can overcome the world and the persuasions of men.
