Relief Society General President Jean B. Bingham speaks about emotional resilience in a new video released by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“We can often feel overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, depression, grief and other emotional challenges,” President Bingham said in the video. “We are imperfect beings each trying our best.”
The video also promotes the Church’s new self-reliance course, “Finding Strength in the Lord: Emotional Resilience,” which is now available in 15 languages.
President Bingham said that like the Apostle Peter when he walked on water, we are often buffeted by the boisterous winds of emotional trials. But we too can receive assistance from the Lord.
