Enduring It Well

Enduring It Well takes a deeper look at some of life's real challenges and features real people who have endured or are enduring trials well.

As a wife and a mother of five children, Joan Yarrington had always tried to shepherd her children forward in the gospel to help them find true happiness and purpose in their lives. As her son approached the day to submit mission papers, he suddenly and without warning chose to no longer participate in the Church. She was devastated.

What had she done wrong? How could this wonderful little boy decide to make such a decision just at the prime of his life? Her son saw the error of his ways and returned to full fellowship, being married in the temple. Joan feels her time spent regularly (daily) in the temple played a significant role in his recovery. Joan joins host W. A. Christensen to tell their story.
