Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: The parable of BYU-Hawaii

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve told BYU-Hawaii’s graduating students that they must get over their insecurities and look to the future with faith. Elder Holland spoke to more than 200 graduates on Saturday, Dec. 17, in commencement exercises held in the Cannon Activities Center on the university’s campus in Laie, Hawaii. “First of all, it is incumbent upon us as students, as Latter-day Saints, and as children of God to see the divine potential in ourselves, to believe in ourselves to know that with God’s help there is quite literally nothing in righteousness that we cannot become,” Elder Holland said. “That is the parable of this school’s history and it ought to be the parable of your history.”
