In these last days, perhaps our greatest work will be with our loved ones — good people living in a wicked world.
Families are a God-given laboratory where we’re figuring things out, so missteps and miscalculations are not just possible but probable. … Let’s zoom out to view family relationships as the powerful vehicle to teach us the lessons we came here to learn as we turn to the Savior.
While our families aren’t perfect, we can perfect our love for others until it becomes a constant, unchanging, no-matter-what kind of love — the type of love that supports change and allows for growth and return. … In earthly families, we’re simply doing what God has done with us — pointing the way and hoping our loved ones will go in that direction, knowing the path they travel is theirs to choose.
It is my witness that the Savior has the ability, because of His Atonement, to turn any nightmare you are going through into a blessing.
It’s the Savior’s work to bring our loved ones back. It’s His work and His timing. It is our work to provide the hope and a heart they can come home to.

Jesus is the Christ.
Purpose of life, be a little better, kinder, more prepared to be in the presence of God.
Emily Belle Freeman

Fast and Testimony meeting, to express our commitment to follow Christ.
Quentin L. Cook
it is never easy for followers of Jesus Christ.
Bad things happen to good people. I honestly do not understand HOW this can be confusing to people if they simply look outside their own lives a few years or a few miles. Bad things happen to EVERY person. Let's stop making this a point of faithfulness or testimony.
Christ took on our pains, afflictions, infirmities, AND sin.
All that is unfair about life can be made whole through the atonement of Christ.
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
It wasn't just an empty stomach that troubled him. It was an empty soul.
Father: how many thousands of hours worrying, pleading with God, looking down the road – for safety, return.
The mother is not part of this story, but I assure you she spent at least as much time in pleading for her child.
It is not possible for you to sink lower than the infinite light of Christ’s Atonement shines. ~ Jeffery R. Holland
Coming back is not easy, but it's possible. Heaven will rejoice.
W. Christopher Waddell
Jesus Christ is the only hero.
Henry B. Eyring
Must have the guidance of Holy Ghost to survive days to come.
We can be taught by the spirit line upon line.
Assignment from Lord that seems far beyond our capacity: I will go and do the things the Lord commands…
Guided minute by minute on the Lord's errand.
It is not easy to achieve ongoing guidance from the spirit.
You must not succumb to the fear that God has abandoned you.
Must want the guidance of God for the Lord's purposes. Want what the Savior wants. Desires driven by the will of God.
I want my “confidence to wax strong in the presence of God.”
God loves you and hears your every prayer.
