The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. You might say, “I’m not the creative type. ... If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit [children] of the most creative Being in the universe. What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. ... Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. The more you trust and rely upon the Spirit, the greater your capacity to create. -- Excerpts from a talk by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, October 2008.
