style="COLOR: black; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">No one wants to experience
pain. But there seems to be "no other way" to teach us some of the valuable
lessons of wisdom and humility, patience and endurance that we need to
experience in this life. Though pain comes to us in different ways- sometimes
self-inflicted, sometimes a natural result of mortality- there are things we can
do to minimize our misery and maximize our learning, regardless of its source.
This book explores how understanding our heritage as sons and daughters of God,
learning to take the Spirit as our guide, avoiding self-deception, and accepting
the Atonement can all help us deal better with the pain that will inevitably
come into our livesstyle="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">.prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
