In a recent interview with Dave McCann of KSL, President Henry B. Eyring shared insights into his pioneer heritage in anticipation of being the Grand Marshall at this year’s Days of ’47 Parade in honor of Pioneer Day.
McCann prompted Eyring to consider the example of his pioneer ancestors and how that influences the way he looks at life today. Although people today may not be walking across the plains to arrive in Salt Lake City, people still have trials. Eyring responded, saying, “God got the pioneers through, he’ll get us through.”
“We’re going through frontiers too and it’s tough. But look, there is a God and He is over all and He loves us, and if you try to be faithful and count on Him then you don’t have to worry.”
