Instructions for Participants and Lead Students

The lead student should plan to incorporate a brief discussion about the devotional into the gathering. Participants should think about and answer these questions:

  • Elder Nielson tells a story where he and his wife sacrificed to be able to pay for and finish their studies. What have you sacrificed to be where you are in this course today? Why can that sacrifice be sacred to you and to the Lord?
  • It took President Russell M. Nelson 14 years to begin collecting a fee for heart surgery, his chosen profession. What do you think kept him on his education path for 14 years? What keeps you on your education path?
