This year I have been blessed to have gained both a nephew and niece. As I hold these sweet babies, it is hard to look at them and not wonder what their futures will look like, what experiences and interests they will have, what kind of people they will grow up to be. And, as I spend time with my nephews and niece who are a bit older, it is hard to see anything but endless potential. Though we may be older, and have a great deal of life experience under our belt, each of us is, as Elder Ronald A. Rasband wrote, yet ”blessed with many marvelous capabilities and one of the great objectives of our journey through mortality is to improve upon them.” Shortly before his crucifixion, the Savior took his disciples to the Mount of Olives and instructed them, teaching them with many parables, including the parable of the talents.
