During general conference, as I thought of all of the individuals watching and listening from their homes and from the Conference Center, I was reminded of how Heavenly Father has a distinct plan for each of us. Heavenly Father can put us in situations with a specific intent in mind. He has done so in my life, and He is doing so in yours.
The Lord placed me in a home with righteous parents. By the world’s standards, they were ordinary people; my devoted father was a truck driver; my angel mother, a stay-at-home mom. The Lord helped me find my lovely wife, Melanie; He prompted a businessman, who became a dear friend, to give me an employment opportunity. The Lord called me to serve in the mission field, both as a young man and as a mission president; He called me to the Quorum of the Seventy; and now He has called me as an Apostle. Looking back, I realize I did not orchestrate those moves; the Lord did, just as He is orchestrating important moves for you and for those you love.
