I see a lot of youth struggle. And rightfully so - they live in a cruel world. A world of instant gratification. They want things - right here, right now! They don't want to wait for their testimony. They don't want the struggle that precedes faith. They don't want to develop it over time. They want it now, and they want it to be like someone else's.
When I was growing up, we were referred to as the Rising Generation. I was honored to be called this. It made me strive to live up to that title. It helped mold me into who I am today.
How can we help the youth of today realize that this title of the Chosen Generation is a wonderful thing? It is a privilege to be called this and to be alive right now; to be the future of the Church. I believe the long taught doctrine of simply living the gospel in its simplest form is the way. The truth of doing what is right, obedience, taking of the sacrament, and so many other things, is the way to help them realize that they truly are the chosen generation - and they have the power and ability to do amazing things!
