The Future Is Ahead, and We Must Prepare for It By: Elder Richard E. Cook
The Future Is Ahead, and We Must Prepare for It
Good morning. This is a very intimate setting. Generally when I have spoken to students, they’ve been a bit farther away. But I find this very, very appealing. Now, typically when I start to talk, I don’t announce the title of my talk. But I want to do it here, because I want to change it. I just heard something that I was really impressed with. The title that I had chosen until three minutes ago was “Prepare Yourself to Be a Leader.” But I loved the quote from President Monson: “The future is ahead; we must prepare for it.” Isn’t that wonderful? The future is ahead, and we must prepare for it. And I hope that what I have to say here, at least some of the things I have to say, will help you prepare for the future.
