There is a new section on LDS.org specifically focused on ideas and stories about finding hope in life. You can visit the new site on Finding hope here:
In the Mormon faith, we believe that we can find more hope in our lives by following the teachings of Jesus Christ, and by learning about Him and His life. We also believe that we can find hope through prayer and the Holy Spirit, both very strong connections to our Heavenly Father that are available for all people on the earth to benefit from.
Another great way to find hope is to serve others. When we serve other people, we forget our own problems for a time, and can feel better while helping someone in their own trials. While we can’t always expect Heavenly Father to take away the source of our pain, we can gain hope through service.
