"And I command you to take it upon you to counsel with your elder brothers in your undertakings; for behold, thou art in thy youth, and ye stand in need to be nourished by your brothers. And give heed to their counsel." — Alma 39:10
As I finish my final semester in my Gerontology graduate school program, I have had some time to reflect on my life and appreciate the counsel of the older brothers and sisters who provided for me in my time of need. These beautiful, loving saints were my solid foundation. While I studied, they prayed all semester long. While I looked for a job, they prayed every week until I received. While I packed for GMBA Camp, they prayed for a safe flight.
The following is a short collection of a long list of blessings I've received from the older generation. Sure, I am a young person, and I have all the energy in the world, but without the support of my brothers and sisters, I would not be where I am today. They are the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, and the constant reminder of God's promises to the righteous.
