New Mormon Message for Youth Highlights Importance of Callings


One young man, Daniel, overcomes his fears of playing the piano for Sacrament Meeting by magnifying his calling.

Daniel, who learned how to play the piano from missionaries, says that he often makes mistakes when he plays the piano for church. However, Daniel says that making mistakes is part of life and through the Atonement we can correct our mistakes.

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency, emphasizes the importance of callings in this new Mormon Message shown above.

I urge you to see [your calling] as an opportunity not only to strengthen and bless others, but also to become what Heavenly Father wants you to become.
