“Tragedies are not something that are inherently unconquerable, but we can make choices on how we respond to them,” Elder Lund said. “That was a really important concept for me.”
Obtaining a greater understanding of hope and its role in the gospel as one of the three great Christian virtues — faith, hope and charity — was one significant benefit Elder Lund took away from this project. He hopes his readers come away with a similar message.
“The more I studied and talked to people, the more I understood why those three are together. Faith is the power that helps us to live the gospel. Hope gives the motivation to keep going no matter what life throws at us. And love, that’s the result,” Elder Lund said. “Trust in the promises God that has made, that no matter what is coming, if we are faithful, he will reward us. That is the whole concept of this book.”
