"The word 'ensign' refers to a flag, standard, or sign. In battle an ensign would be held up to give guidance to soldiers so they would know where to go. If the standard was lost or its bearer killed, then the soldiers would be like sheep without a shepherd and at the mercy of their enemies."

May Issue: Conferencisms
Last night for FHE we hiked Ensign Peak. It is a leg burner for sure! This quote comes from a talk by Paul V. Johnson of the seventy about overcoming trials and challenges. I love when he said, "Sometimes we want to have growth without challenges and to develop without any struggle. But growth cannot come by taking the easy way."
