“Some Church members feel weighed down with discouragement about the circumstances of their personal lives, even when they are making sustained and admirable efforts. Frequently, these feelings of self-disappointment come not from wrongdoing, but from stresses and troubles for which we may not be fully to blame. The Atonement of Jesus Christ applies to these experiences because it applies to all of life. The Savior can wipe away all of our tears, after all we can do…The Savior’s atonement is…the healing power not only for sin, but also for carelessness, inadequacy, and all mortal
bitterness. The Atonement is not just for sinners.” Bruce C. Hafen, Ensign, Apr 1990, 7
