The 2 Items President Uchtdorf Always Carries with Him--And You Should, Too

In a Facebook post last year, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf shared the two items he carries every day in his pocket. 

The first is pretty easy to guess—it's his temple recommend. 

President Howard W. Hunter said, "I would hope that every adult member would be worthy of—and carry—a current temple recommend, even if proximity to a temple does not allow immediate or frequent use of it."

But the second item President Uchtdorf carries may come as a surprise: it's a miniature "For the Strength of Youth" pamphlet. 

Concerning the two items, he shared, "These two items are connected—not only because they are similar in size, but also because they represent the same thing: your worthiness to enter the house of the Lord."

At a Q&A with the youth, Elder David A. Bednar and his wife Susan also recommended carrying the miniature "For the Strength of Youth" pamphlet in your wallet.
