Fear is the result of focusing on events that may occur in the future. It happens when our faith fails. It is the result of pulling real pain from the past or imagined pain and projecting it on what might be. Choosing to stay present and building our faith in God can help us combat fear.

When Deiter F. Uchtdorf was a young child, he learned that his mother was a great example of how hope and faith in God and in the Gospel of Jesus Christ can help anyone overcome fear. Toward the end of World War II, my mother decided to flee to Germany where her parents were living. Though I was only three years old, I can still remember this time of fear and hunger. Along the way the train stopped occasionally to get supplies. One night, during one of these stops, my mother hurried out of the train to search for some food for her four children. I know with certainty, her faith overcame her fear, and her hope overcame her despair.
