I will share a simple pattern which, if applied, can help every one of us find ultimate acceptance. This pattern was given by the Lord through the Prophet Joseph Smith: “Verily I say unto you, all among them who know their hearts are honest, and are broken, and their spirits contrite, and are willing to observe their covenants by sacrifice—yea, every sacrifice which I, the Lord, shall command—they are accepted of me.”
This pattern consists of three simple steps:
Know that our hearts are honest and broken,
Know that our spirits are contrite, and
Be willing to observe our covenants by sacrifice, as commanded by the Lord.
