The holders of God's priesthood who are faithful share in the fellowship of foreordination, being called, Alma said, "according to the foreknowledge of God, on account of their exceeding faith and good works." (Alma 13:3.) You, youth and young adults of the Church, come to this life not only trailing traits and talents from your premortal experience, but you also come having manifested good works in that same earlier experience - from which there is a carry-over commitment.
You have come to blend capacity and opportunity. You have come to see fulfilled and to help fulfill certain prophecies. All of you who have been called to holy callings, according to Alma, are called on account of your faith, here and before. The special daughters of Zion share in this same unfolding drama, for we can neither succeed without them nor go anywhere in the world to come - anywhere that really matters - without them. Believe, therefore, not only in the promises concerning the Church, but in the promises concerning you, individually.
