We have been hearing a lot lately about how we are living in "difficult times," as if preceding times were a cake walk, or were somehow easier than the times before now. I know it seems like there is mounting pressure, opposition, and hardship, but our times are about as challenging as they were for our parents, and their parents, and their parents, and so on down to Adam! Life is challenging. That's why I so appreciated Ann M. Dibbs' talk, "Hold On." I love righteous women of God; they are so inspiring to me! I've looked on the Church's website for a brief bio on Sister Dibbs, but haven't found one. What I know of her is that she is President Monson's only daughter, that she was four when he was called as a mission president in Canada, and 11 when her father was called as an Apostle. Surely she has been well taught in the gospel!
I hope we can gain some strenth from her words. When we're done reading, lets take a little time and make ourselves a reminder to "Get a Grip!"
