– Russell M. Nelson




hafenbc1“So if we are becoming more aware of our weaknesses, that doesn’t mean we are drifting away from Him; it may well mean that we are drawing closer.  Like a good coach, a good tutor will help his students see their mistakes and correct them.  When we understand that, correction is motivating, not discouraging, for because of the Atonement, we can learn from our mistakes without being condemned by them.”
– Bruce C. Hafen


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.”

– Richard G. Scott




hinckley_medium“One of the greatest tragedies we witness almost daily is the tragedy of men of high aim and low achievement. Their motives are noble. Their proclaimed ambition is praiseworthy. Their capacity is great. But their discipline is weak. They succumb to indolence. Appetite robs them of will.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley



jeffrey-r-holland-large“However many mistakes you feel you have made or talents you think you don’t have, or however far from home and family and God you feel you have traveled, I testify that you have not traveled beyond the reach of divine love. It is not possible for you to sink lower than the infinite light of Christ’s Atonement shines.”

trumanmadsen“President Grant believed that intellectual reasons for refusing to investigate the church or for leaving the church are after ‘after the fact’ – and the fact is behavior.  When a person’s life is out of harmony with the truth he tends to find a rationale for his behavior.  He has received some light, but he tries to suppress it and invents plausible reasons to do so.  But he believed conscience will speak out in protest at our lives and our sins when we are out of harmony.  On the other hand, our conscience will ‘kiss’ us, as it were, when we honor the core of our hearts, which is truth.”
– Truman G. Madsen


MONSON_medium“The face of sin today often wears the mask of tolerance. Do not be deceived; behind that façade is heartache, unhappiness, and pain… You be the one to stand for right, even if you stand alone. Have the moral courage to be a light for others to follow.”
– Thomas S. Monson

Neal-A-Maxwell-Mormon“What we are speaking about is so much more than merely deflecting temptations for which we somehow do not feel responsible. Remember, brothers and sisters, it is our own desires which determine the sizing and the attractiveness of various temptations. We set our thermostats as to temptations.”
– Neal A. Maxwell



Neal-A-Maxwell-Mormon“Never give up what you want most for what you want today.”
– Neal A. Maxwell

– Linda S. Reeves





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
