As individuals look at trials in life as stepping stones — rather than stumbling blocks — they are able to face and overcome the adversity that comes their way, Elder Steven E. Snow of the Seventy, and church historian for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said during a campus devotional at BYU on Tuesday.
"How can we make a bad experience become a learning experience?" he asked. "Part of the answer, of course, lies in perspective."
Elder Snow shared a few examples of stumbling blocks for individuals to be aware of and avoid, as well as offered counsel to help individuals stay strong in times of trial.
