“Let us not partake of the negative spirit so rife in our times. There is so much of the sweet and the decent and the beautiful to build upon. We are partakers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel means “good news!” The message of the Lord is one of hope and salvation! The voice of the Lord is a voice of glad tidings! The work of the Lord is a work of glorious accomplishment!”
—President Gordon B. Hinckley

“And now after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!
“For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father—
“That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God.” —Doctrine and Covenants 76:22–24

“None so great has ever walked the earth. None other has made a comparable sacrifice or granted a comparable blessing. He is the Savior and the Redeemer of the world. I believe in Him. I declare His divinity without equivocation or compromise. I love Him. I speak the name of Jesus Christ in reverence and wonder. He is our King, our Lord, our Master, the living Christ, who stands on the right hand of His Father. He lives! He lives, resplendent and wonderful, the living Son of the living God.” –President Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, March 2008

“We know we are daughters of God, and we know what we are to do. . . We believe in the formation of eternal families. . . . we believe in getting married. . . . we believe in having children. We have faith that with the Lord’s help we can be successful in rearing and teaching children. . . .  Families mean work, but they are our great work—and we are not afraid of work. This is what we do best . . . .”—Julie B. Beck

“The things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity—thou must commune with God. How much more dignified and noble are the thoughts of God, than the vain imaginations of the human heart!”— Joseph Smith

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
Mark 9:23

“God does not need us to love Him. But oh, how we need to love God! For what we love determines what we seek. What we seek determines what we think and do. What we think and do determines who we are—and who we will become.” —Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“You’d think there would be a better way for one of the Twelve to bear testimony, but we’re left to bear it in the same way our little grandkids do in Primary—just to say we know it’s true. But I know that He lives. I know His voice when He speaks. I know Him, and of Him I bear witness.”
—President Boyd K. Packer

And [Jesus Christ] hath brought to pass the redemption of the world, whereby he that is found guiltless before him at the judgement day hath it given to him to dwell in the presence of God in his kingdom, to sing ceaseless praises with the choirs above, unto the Father, and unto the Son, and unto the Holy Ghost, . . . in a state of happiness which hath no end.”—Mormon 7:7

“Often, the answer to our prayer does not come while we are on our knees but while we’re on our feet serving the Lord and serving those around us. Selfless acts of service and consecration refine our spirits, remove the scales from our spiritual eyes, and open the windows of heaven. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer, we often find the answer to our own.”
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“This is a paradox of man: compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God.

We have the incomprehensible promise of exaltation—worlds without end—within our grasp. And it is God’s great desire to help us reach it.”—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“His concern is for the faith at which you finally arrive, not the hour of the day in which you got there.”—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, April General Conference, 2012
