“Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going?”
All around people ask these questions. Before we were born on earth, we lived as spirit children of Heavenly Father. To progress, we needed to come to earth and obtain physical bodies. This is the only way we could enjoy all the blessings of the Father. Each person to ever live on earth chose to come and engage in this test--learn of Him, choose joy, and keep the agency Father blessed us with or surrender agency to the one that wants eternal misery for all. Heavenly Father wants us to succeed but will never force us to choose right.
