In part 2 of this interview, Viola shares her perspective on the Plan of Salvation.  She also shares her thoughts on the principle of hope.  As Mormons, we are familiar with faith, hope, and charity (see 1 Cor. 13:13).  We try to exercise faith, and strive to treat others with charity.  But too often we overlook the “hope”.  What is hope?  Why is it so important?  How can we have it?  Viola shares her thoughts on this.

I am glad to have been able to catch Viola Nabrotzky for this interview, just days before she relocated to the United States to get married.  She is a lawyer practicing family law, and has a background in social work.  She is a gifted gospel teacher, and student of the scriptures.  In Part 1 of this interview, Viola shares her experiences growing up, the impact of losing both of her parents as a teen, her mission, education, and her encounter with a very direct, yet inspired aunt.
