Climbing a Mountain to get over adversity

In my digger deeper portion of my class I got to watch a video clip about three families affected by some tragedy. Death, getting hurt and lack of being able to pay bills and provide for family fully. I have personally been through two of these. When my mom died it was very hard. I love her very much. She was our glue for the family. I wasn't sure what was going to happen. As time went on I knew that we would be okay because the Lord has plan. Life is different without mom but all of us will see her again.
Then we have not being able to care for the family. We had hard times when we had some medical issues, we were lucky enough to have the church to help and some family members. We made it through. Again though the plan of the Lord we were okay. No one suffered.

Listening to Learn...

This week we had to listen to to a very good talk about listen to learn. Russell M Nelson gave the talk in the April 1991 conference. This was a great talk. I think it hits home because of the pathway program. I listen so I can learn. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to do the program because I already have a degree, why do I need another one? As I prayed and heard the voice it didn't seem to matter that I had a degree, I had to do this. I could not even figure out what course to take. As the weeks got closer to start the classes I knew that family history genealogy was what I needed to study. 

I again am listening to learn. I may not know the exact reason why I need to follow that path yet but it will make sense later. I was so happy that I will be able to follow this path no matter what. because the Lord has told me this is it. 

So listen to learn, no matter what the voice says it is for a reason.
