“For each of us to “come unto Christ,” to keep His commandments and follow His example back to the Father is surely the highest and holiest purpose of human existence. To help others do that as well—to teach, persuade, and prayerfully lead them to walk that path of redemption also—surely that must be the second most significant task in our lives.”

“Let the Savior be your “lead” in life. He has said, “I am . . . the Rock of Heaven . . . ; whoso cometh in at the gate and climbeth up by me shall never fall” (Moses 7:53). The Redeemer will safely lead you over the most difficult obstacles of life. His laws are absolutely secure anchors of protection that dispel fear and assure success in an otherwise dangerous world. Such a life will certainly provide you peace and happiness.”
