Elder Jeffrey R. Holland has taken a page out of the book of optimism that President Gordon B. Hinckley frequently read from. In a world full of chaos, the gospel of Jesus Christ, says Elder Holland, is the most rewarding truth and will prepare the world for His coming.
“My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.”

In an address to members of the Church Educational System, Elder Holland was full of optimism and hope for the future.
“We know for certain that if or when everything else in the latter days is down or dying: if governments, economies, industries, and institutions crumble; if societies and cultures become a quagmire of chaos and insecurity, nevertheless through it all the gospel of Jesus Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that bears that gospel to the world will stand triumphant, and we will stand undefiled in God’s hand until the very Son of God Himself comes to rule and reign as Lord of lords and King of kings.”
“Nothing is more certain in this world. Nothing is more sure. Nothing could be more of an antidote to anxiety.”
“With uncompromised confidence in God I ask you to summon full confidence in yourselves and build full confidence in your students by teaching with conviction and optimism that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the most certain, the most secure, the most reliable, and the most rewarding truth on earth and in heaven, in time and in eternity.”
“I ask you to teach that nothing—not anything, not anyone, not any influence—will keep this Church from fulfilling its mission and realizing its destiny declared from before the foundation of the world.”
