Bonnie Cordon, the current president of the Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recently shared personal insights on how to draw close to the Savior in real and personal ways.

Her inspiration came from her father’s advice to “never give up an opportunity to testify of Christ” when he was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2011. This advice impressed upon her the importance of developing a personal relationship with the Savior.

Cordon emphasized that personal closeness to Christ can be achieved through frequent temple worship, daily repentance, scripture study, attending church and seminary, pondering patriarchal blessings, receiving ordinances, honoring covenants, and testifying of Him.

Cordon reminded her audience that the invitation of Christ during his visit to the Nephites was not to stand at a distance but to draw near Him. She stressed that, while physical proximity may not be possible, through the Holy Ghost, one can experience the power of Christ every day.

In a world where the adversary can make it difficult to hear the Lord’s voice, Cordon emphasized the importance of seeking after the things of Christ to “hear Him” with clarity. She urged the members to create a “muscle memory of discipleship and testimony” that would help them rely on the Savior each day.

Cordon concluded her message by encouraging the members to “look for Christ everywhere” as he is always present in our lives. She promised that by drawing close to the Savior, one can experience a deep and meaningful relationship with Him that can help navigate the challenges of life.
