Doubt Your Doubts

The title of this piece was probably my favorite quote from conference. I am grateful to Elder Uchtdorf for acknowledging that people leaving the church is not a simple situation and for recognizing that asking a lot of questions can lead you both out of the church as well as in to greater truth. 

His counsel was beautiful and timely; I wish some of my friends had stuck around long enough to hear him . . . but maybe it wouldn't matter.  I know many people who are proudly embracing their doubts at the moment. As if to do so makes them smarter or more savvy or more sophisticated.

I pray for the humility and wisdom to doubt my doubts and embrace my faith instead.
