President Uchtdorf reminds us of the creative yearnings we have all had born within us.
It reminded me of how even little children will try to create: building with blocks, playing in sand, or coloring, painting, cutting and pasting with paper.
“Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you.” I was visiting in Primary and I heard a child say about her paper she was coloring, “it’s ruined.” I looked at it, and I could not guess what she thought was wrong with it. I said to her, “it is fine; do the best you can with it.” I think we all need a little more encouragement and a little less negativity about our efforts. We are, each of us, our own harshest critics.
I close with this quote from President Uchtdorf: “The more you trust and rely upon the Spirit, the greater your capacity to create.”
