Posting this one from my friend Holly - "To My Sisters" - because it's very nicely written.
Faith is not just a feeling. Faith is a CHOICE.If there is a silver lining to the turmoil playing out in the public eye, it’s that we – all of us – have an opportunity to revisit our own testimonies of the priesthood and of the role God plays in our lives.
We have a choice to let this strengthen our testimony and our faith. We can choose the paradox of allowing room for both faith AND questions, without letting our questions pull us from the moorings of our faith.
Let me quote the “Silver Fox,” President Dieter F Uchtdorf, from the October 2013 General Conference. In a talk titled “Come, Join With Us”, he pleads with us to “Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.”
