President Nelson shares his recent challenges with balance

In a recent social media post, President Nelson confirmed a few rumors that have been floating around. Our 98-year-old prophet has recently had a “small challenge” with his balance and can sometimes be spotted with a wheelchair or walker.

The comments section quickly became flooded with messages of love and wishes for good health. The post resonated with Latter-day Saints who also struggle with balance due to injuries or age. No matter the reason, many people have found yet another reason to be inspired by President Nelson—not to mention his energy and bright countenance that make it impossible to avoid a smile.
