Christ is alive, His work, mercy, miracles have not ceased but continue forever.
David D Brosnahan MD
As an aside, I think it's pretty amazing that Moroni saw the issue that Dr. Zacharias raises 1800 years ago and addresses it in the very last verses of the Book of Mormon:
Moroni 10:32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.

How do we find joy in the face of adversity and natural disasters?
Focus on the Savior Jesus Christ
Christ felt our pains, loss, persecutions, hunger and abuses.
We must trust Gods answers.
God is our source of healing and peace.
God is more concerned with our progress over our comfort.
We have divine potential and royal promise
Building testimony will be better in adversity than an internet post.
Reach out to serve.
Man who fell off a cliff on Mt. Shasta experienced miracles of healing
Another 2 couples who died in plane crash didn't.
Has the day of miracles ceased?
Sometimes there is intervention sometimes not. (Dan 3:17-18)
Are we looking for the wrong kind of miracles?
Spiritual miracles are available to all.
Do not neglect spiritual priorities
Don't forget where we are going and why we are running
Sabbath, Temple, Homes can help us remember.
Change in our nature, little by little.
Covenants and ordinances are the means that God has provided
We dress and act differently in the temple.
Sabbath and Temple are both sacred spaces.
We must bring spirit back to our homes
Don't be overcome by the mundane matters and become partakers of the divine nature.
How do we respond when life provides unexpected paths?
Bro. Shumway blinded on D-day: job, married, bishop, patriarch, mission.
Hope and peace are always available through Christ in any circumstance.
We can only control how we respond to challenges.
God eased the burden of the people of Alma. They turned to the Lord.
Brazen Serpent; those who looked lived
God will support us in our trials and troubles
Scriptures, prayer, blessings, professional counseling, and medication.
Look beyond what we can see
Look beyond assumptions and stereotypes
Offer a reason to hope
Lord looketh upon the heart
Elijah: They that are with us are more
We surround ourselves with those who see as we do
We should be kind but do not need to embrace false ideas
Jesus Christ at the center of our lives will open our eyes
Delete negative thoughts about others
Read the Book of Mormon daily
Sense of optimism and greater love of other
Fear not little flock, do good, perform the work that I commanded you and ye shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven
Teton Dam: where can we go to help?
Miracle of quiet courage
Pioneers exhibited miracle of faith to build God's Zion.
Yellow Angels: Mormon helping hands in Florida
Greater courage and concern for others
The world will be in commotion in the Last Days.
The Latter-day Saints will be worthy to receive the Lord when He comes.
Doubt not, fear not; pray always and be believing.
Be persistent and consistent in following prophetic counsel.
The best days are ahead for God's Kingdom.
