36923_all_22-straightupmcconkieFaith is the child of knowledge. It is reserved for those only who first have knowledge; there neither is nor can be any faith until there is knowledge. No one can have faith in a God of whom he knows nothing. Faith is founded on truth; it is the offspring of truth; it can never exist alone and apart from the truth. No one can have faith unto life and salvation in a false god; no idol ever had power to raise the dead or stop the sun. And faith is power. It is true that faith in some doctrine or on some theological point may be imperfect; it is true that sproutings of either faith or knowledge can become perfect relative to that doctrine or concept. But faith itself – the great and eternal power that creates and governs and saves, faith unto life and salvation – saving faith grows out of knowledge and cannot come in any other way”
– Bruce R. McConkie


henry-b-eyring-largeIf we have faith in Jesus Christ, the hardest as well as the easiest times in life can be a blessing. In all conditions, we can choose the right with the guidance of the Spirit. We have the gospel of Jesus Christ to shape and guide our lives if we choose it. And with prophets revealing to us our place in the plan of salvation, we can live with perfect hope and a feeling of peace. We never need to feel that we are alone or unloved in the Lord’s service because we never are. We can feel the love of God. The Savior has promised angels on our left and our right to bear us up. And He always keeps His word.”
– Henry B. Eyring


boyd-k-packer-large“Faith, to be faith, must center around something that is not known.  Faith, to be faith, must go beyond that for which there is confirming evidence.  Faith, to be faith, must go into the unknown.  Faith, to be faith, must walk to the edge of the light, and then a few steps into the darkness.  If everything has to be known, if everything has to be explained, if everything has to be certified, then there is no need for faith.  Indeed, there is no room for it.”
– Boyd K. Packer

jeffrey-r-holland-large“My beloved brothers and sisters, to those of you who have been blessed by the gospel for many years because you were fortunate enough to find it early, to those of you who have come to the gospel by stages and phases later, and to those of you—members and not yet members—who may still be hanging back, to each of you, one and all, I testify of the renewing power of God’s love and the miracle of His grace.

m-russell-ballard-large“Occasionally I hear people say, ‘I am living righteously, but things are not working out for me. I am losing patience and I wonder, where are all the blessings?’ To any of you who feel this way, I would encourage you to change your perspective. We are eternal spirits! We must live our lives with the end in mind – not in the middle. We must trust in the Lord. We must understand that some will be tested more than others. We should remember that no blessing will be denied if we continue to keep the commandments. Turn to the plan of salvation – it can answer all of your questions. Take the sacrament each week. It will help you regain spiritual strength. Trust in the Lord and understand that all blessings will come at the right time.”
– M. Russell Ballard

– Dieter F. Uchtdorf



dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“The purpose of faith is not to change God’s will but to empower us to act on God’s will. Faith is trust – trust that God sees what we cannot and that He knows what we do not. Sometimes, trusting our own vision and judgment is not enough.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf
