Neal-A-Maxwell-Mormon“God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, He will increase our capability.”
– Neal A. Maxwell




Lorenzo Snow“Knowing our religion to be true we ought to be the most devoted people on the face of the earth to the cause we have embraced.  Knowing as we do, or should know, that the gospel we have received promises all our hearts can wish or desire, if we are faithful, we ought to be very faithful, devoted, energetic and ambitious in carrying out the designs and wishes of the Lord as He reveals them from time to time through His servants.  We ought not to be lukewarm or negligent in attending to our duties, but with all our might, strength, and souls we should try to understand the spirit of our calling and the nature of the work in which we are engaged.”
– Lorenzo Snow


Neal-A-Maxwell-Mormon“We must wait until an errant individual is willing to receive the Holy Ghost.  We cannot force that moment.  Given their agency, individuals must desire to be touched by Him.  Thus, we are to ‘continue to minister’ until a person desires change; he, alone, can decide to engaged with the Holy Spirit.  Thus, we cannot force things, but we can ‘continue to minister’.  Yes, we go on trying even when our witness is unheeded.  The Lord has told us firmly how this process works.  After all, God is in the business of saving souls.  It is His work and glory.  We must consider the wait as part of life and part of His work.  Ironically, while we are to ‘wait upon the Lord’, He must also wait for us.”
– Neal A. Maxwell

– Marvin J. Ashton




henry-b-eyring-large“Don’t worry about how inexperienced you are or think you are, but think about what, with the Lord’s help, you can become.”
– Henry B. Eyring




John-taylor-mormon“If you do not magnify your calling, God will hold you responsible for those you might have saved, had you done your duty.”
– John Taylor




hinckley_medium“I have worked with seven Presidents of the Church. I have recognized that all have been human. But I have never been concerned over this. They may have had some weaknesses. But this has never troubled me. I know that the God of heaven has used mortal men throughout history to accomplish His divine purpose.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley

MONSON_medium“Now, some of you may be shy by nature, perhaps feeling yourselves inadequate to respond affirmatively to a calling. Remember that this work is not yours and mine alone. It is the Lord’s work, and when we are on the Lord’s errand, we are entitled to the Lord’s help. Remember that the Lord will shape the back to bear the burden placed upon it.”
– Thomas S. Monson


Elder-Joe-J_-Christensen“I have asked mission presidents in many parts of the world this question: ‘How many missionaries do you have in your mission who are really spiritual and also lazy?’ There isn’t one in all the world. Laziness and spirituality don’t go together. The most spiritual people I know are also some of the hardest working people I have ever met. So if you want to increase your level of spirituality, work hard. Magnify your callings within the church. Really work!”
– Joe J. Christensen



MONSON_medium“Miracles are everywhere to be found when priesthood callings are magnified. When faith replaces doubt, when selfless service eliminates selfish striving, the power of God brings to pass His purposes. Whom God calls, God qualifies.”
– Thomas S. Monson



hinckley_medium“This Church does not belong to its President. Its head is the Lord Jesus Christ, whose name each of us have taken upon ourselves. We are all in this great endeavor together. We are here to assist our Father in His work and His glory… Your obligation is as serious in your sphere of responsibility as is in my sphere. No calling in this Church is small or of little consequence.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley


georgealbertsmith“This is our Father’s work. It is the most important thing that we will be identified with in this life.”
– George Albert Smith




d-todd-christofferson-large“Everyone has gifts; everyone can contribute.”
– D. Todd Christofferson





Harold B. Lee“Now let us confess it, all of us are ‘sinners anonymous.’ All of us have done things we ought not to have done, or we have neglected things we should have done; and every one of us has need for repentance. So let us not spend too much time confessing the other fellow’s sins. Ours is the responsibility to find our own need for repentance.”
– Harold B. Lee



ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“I say to you that one of the most important things you can do as priesthood leaders it to immerse yourselves in the scriptures. Search them diligently. Feast upon the words of Christ. Learn the doctrine. Master the principles that are found therein. There are few other efforts that will bring greater dividends to your calling. There are few other ways to gain greater inspiration as you serve.”
– Ezra Taft Benson
