Know How to Work

   Posted by: admin

“How I admire men, women, and children who know how to work! How the Lord loves the laborer! He said, ‘In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread’ (Genesis 3:19), and ‘The laborer is worthy of his hire’ (D&C 84:79). He also gave a promise: ‘Thrust in your sickle with all your soul, and your sins are forgiven you’ (D&C 31:5). Those who are unafraid to roll up their sleeves and lose themselves in the pursuit of worthwhile goals are a blessing to their families, communities, nations, and to the Church.”

The Choice

   Posted by: admin

Elder Boyd K. Packer said “We want our children and their children to know that the choice of life is not between fame and obscurity, nor is the choice between wealth and poverty. The choice is between good and evil, and that is a very different matter indeed…Our lives are made up of thousands of everyday choices. Over the years these little choices will be bundled together and show clearly what we value.”

(Boyd K. Packer, “The Choice”, Ensign, Nov. 1980, 21)

New and Everlasting Covenant

   Posted by: admin

“The new and everlasting covenant is the gospel of Jesus Christ. In other words, the doctrines and commandments of the gospel constitute the substance of an everlasting covenant between God and man that is newly restored in each dispensation. If we were to state the new and everlasting covenant in one sentence it would be this: ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life’ (John 3:16).”

The Door to True Happiness

   Posted by: admin

“The gospel of Jesus Christ has the answers to all of our problems. The gospel is not a secret. It is not complicated or hidden. It can unlock the door to true happiness. It is not someone’s theory or proposition. It does not come from man at all. It springs from the pure and everlasting waters of the Creator of the universe, who knows truths we cannot even begin to comprehend. And with that knowledge, He has given us the gospel—a divine gift, the ultimate formula for happiness and success.”

The Good News

   Posted by: admin

“The gospel is the good news of Christ. It is the revelation that the Son of God came to earth, lived a perfect life, atoned for our sins, and conquered death. It is the path of salvation, the way of hope and joy, and the assurance that God has a plan of redemption and happiness for His children.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “The Way of the Disciple,” Ensign, May 2009, 75–78
