Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Presidency of the Seventy has taught that remembering and forgetting are a part of both our everyday life and our eternal journey.
Each week, we have the opportunity to remember the Savior as we partake of the sacrament. He has outlined 6 ways to always remember Him
1. Have confidence in His covenants, promises and assurances
2. Gratefully acknowledge His hand throughout our lives
3. Trust when the Lord assures us that He will forgive sins and “remember them no more” when we have repented
4. He invites us to remember that He is always welcoming us home.
5. On the Sabbath through the sacrament
6. Always remember Him as He always remembers us.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Sister Bonnie H. Cordon – Second Counselor in the Primary General Presidency has shared three ways to increase our knowledge and trust in the Savior. These principles can help us to be centered on and focused on our Savior Jesus Christ, rather than leaning to our own understanding.
1 – Come to know the Lord and trust Him as we follow the counsel found in 2 Nephi 32:3 “…feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.”
2 – Come to know the Lord and trust Him through prayer. Moroni 7:48 counsels us to “Pray unto the Father will all the energy of heart.”
3 – Come to know the Lord and trust Him as we serve others.
“We are on earth to demonstrate the same trust in Him that allowed us to stand with Jesus Christ when He declared, “Here am I, send me” (Abraham 3:27)
