Elder Holland gives an excellent talk again at conference. He talks about how sometimes we are challenged for what we believe, but we need to be equal to the challenge. Ours is not a convenient or an easy faith. But it is a faith build upon doing what God would have us do, and sometimes that is hard, as we stand up for morality in an immoral world.
This is my answer to the question, have I ever been persecuted for my faith, a theme introduced by this discourse.
