In this episode, I’m discussing my passion for advocating that parents and church leaders help children and teens utilize resources and tools that may help them overcome many of the unique challenges they face today.
Today's youth face increased anxiety, addiction, depression, aggression from peers, eating disorders, pornography, overall loss of hope and so much more. There is so much that we can do to assist them.
Did you know that Captain Moroni in the Book of Mormon was also passionate about tools and resources? Yep! He called them provisions, and he demanded them, as he knew they were a key to the success of his army. Helaman also requested and utilized necessary provisions for the two thousand stripling warriors. This army of young men and boys was supplied provisions by their fathers well before the battles began. They were also sent the support of good people by way of additional men to assist and strengthen them as they fought the enemy.
Like the two thousand stripling warriors of old, our youth today are in need of armoring up with necessary provisions and being provided with the support of good people in addition to the shield of faith that is also discussed and usually solely focused on in this Book of Mormon story.
Listen to the full episode to learn how together, we can support, strengthen, and bandage up our valiant and strong youth, and reduce the stigma of doing so, as we cheer them along in their journey.
