281.1: Trials and Providence (OT Gospel Doctrine Lesson 12, Updated)

March 24, 2018

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“Fruitful in the Land of My Affliction”


Joseph’s story has a bit of a fairy tale happy ending, but how do we apply it to our own stories, which have not yet ended? How do we put ourselves in the path of Providence, so to speak? This update reviews lessons from both Joseph and his family, and focuses on how we can dedicate ourselves to principles, process, and practice in a way that both maximizes the chance of success and maintains our wellness and growth no matter what happens.
