Elder Robert D. Hales: Preparing for adulthood

Young Adults from across Cache Valley came to listen to Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints speak at the 67th annual Joseph Smith Memorial Fireside, held at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum on the campus of Utah State University campus on Sunday, Feb. 20.

The nearly 9,000 students in attendance heard Elder Hales teach them there are preparatory times in their lives that will make them ready for the challenges, tests and trials that are part of their earthly existence.

"It would be well for each us to ask ourselves: What am I doing now in my preparation for adulthood?"

He said that Joseph Smith was prepared before the foundations of the earth to be the Prophet of the Restoration. He went on to chronicle the events in world and religious history and talk about those who were put to death for daring to point out errors in the ruling church of the day.
