boyd-k-packer-large“If you understand the great Plan of Happiness and follow it, what goes on in the world will not determine your happiness.”
– Boyd K. Packer




davidomckay“Generally there is in man a divinity which strives to push him onward and upward. We believe that this power within him is the spirit that comes from God. Man lived before he came this earth, and he is here now to strive to perfect the spirit within. At some time in his life, every man is conscious of a desire to come in touch with the Infinite. His spirit reaches out for God. This sense of feeling is universal, and all men ought to be, in deepest truth, engaged in the same great work – the search for and the development of spiritual peace and freedom.”
– David O. McKay


MONSON_medium“Today we are encamped against the greatest array of sin, vice, and evil ever assembled before our eyes… The battle plan whereby we fight to save the souls of men is not our own. It came through the inspiration and revelation of the Lord.”
– Thomas S. Monson

– M. Russell Ballard





Joseph_Smith1_Mormon“The Lord takes away, even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this present world; therefore, if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them again.”
– Joseph Smith




Russell_M_Nelson“We were born to die and we die to live. As seedings of God, we barely blossom on earth; we fully flower in heaven.”
– Russell M. Nelson




MONSON_medium“Essential to the plan is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without His atoning sacrifice, all would be lost. It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve. We need to know God’s laws and live them. We need to receive His saving ordinances. Only by so doing will we obtain true, eternal happiness.”
– Thomas S. Monson

spencerwkimball“If you can think of the greatest real joys that have ever come to you in this life, then think of the next life as a projection of this one with all the purposeful things multiplied, enlarged, and even more desirable.  All in these associations fo our lives here have brought to you development and joy and growth and happiness.  Now when life ends, we shall return to a situation patterned after our life here, only less limited, more glorious, more increased joys.”
– Spencer W. Kimball


hinckley_medium“We cannot call back the dead, but we can call upon our Heavenly Father to bring comfort and solace to those who have suffered much.”

MONSON_medium“I am certain that we left our Heavenly Father with an overwhelming desire to return to Him.”

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
