Overcoming the World - By Elder Neil L. Andersen

lds.org

Elder Neil L. Andersen
Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

For decades, I have remembered the words: “These are they who have overcome the world.” . . .

Those who overcome the world develop an all-encompassing love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. . . .

“We love him, because he first loved us.” . . .

Overcoming the world is not one defining moment in a lifetime, but a lifetime of moments that define an eternity.

Rise Up in Strength, Sisters in Zion - By Bonnie L. Oscarson

lds.org

Sisters, I don’t believe that conditions are going to improve going forward. If current trends are an indication, we need to be prepared for the storms that lie ahead. It would be easy to throw our hands up in despair, but as covenant people we need never despair. As Elder Gary E. Stevenson has said, “Heavenly Father’s generous compensation for living in perilous times is that we also live in the fulness of times.” I love the comfort of that statement.

President Russell M. Nelson told us a year ago: “Attacks against the Church, its doctrine, and our way of life are going to increase. Because of this, we need women who have a bedrock understanding of the doctrine of Christ and who will use that understanding to teach and help raise a sin-resistant generation. We need women who can detect deception in all of its forms. We need women who know how to access the power that God makes available to covenant keepers and who express their beliefs with confidence and charity. We need women who have the courage and vision of our Mother Eve.”

Tomorrow the Lord Will Do Wonders among You - By Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

lds.org

Keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep growing.Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow, and forever.








Please remember tomorrow, and all the days after that, that the Lord blesses those who want to improve, who accept the need for commandments and try to keep them, who cherish Christlike virtues and strive to the best of their ability to acquire them. If you stumble in that pursuit, so does everyone; the Savior is there to help you keep going. If you fall, summon His strength. Call out like Alma, “O Jesus, … have mercy on me.” He will help you get back up. He will help you repent, repair, fix whatever you have to fix, and keep going. Soon enough you will have the success you seek.

“As you desire of me so it shall be done unto you,” the Lord has declared.

“… Put your trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good—yea, to do justly, to walk humbly, to judge righteously. …

“… [Then] whatsoever you desire of me [in] righteousness, … you shall receive.”

I love that doctrine! It says again and again that we are going to be blessed for our desire to do good, even as we actually strive to be so. And it reminds us that to qualify for those blessings, we must make certain we do not deny them to others: we are to deal justly, never unjustly, never unfairly; we are to walk humbly, never arrogantly, never pridefully; we are to judge righteously, never self-righteously, never unrighteously. . . .

My brothers and sisters, the first great commandment of all eternity is to love God with all of our heart, might, mind, and strength—that’s the first great commandment. But the first great truth of all eternity is that God loves us with all of His heart, might, mind, and strength. That love is the foundation stone of eternity, and it should be the foundation stone of our daily life. . . .

If we give our heart to God, if we love the Lord Jesus Christ, if we do the best we can to live the gospel, then tomorrow—and every other day—is ultimately going to be magnificent, even if we don’t always recognize it as such. Why? Because our Heavenly Father wants it to be! He wants to bless us. A rewarding, abundant, and eternal life is the very object of His merciful plan for His children! It is a plan predicated on the truth “that all things work together for good to them that love God.” So keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting.Keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today,tomorrow, and forever.

“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard?” Isaiah cried.

“[God] giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. …

“… They that wait upon [Him] shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. …

“For … the Lord … God will hold [their] right hand, saying unto [them], Fear not; I will help thee.”


“Sanctify yourselves,” he said, “for to morrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”

". . . As I knocked on Brother Wright's door and heard his feeble voice call, "Come in," I entered not only his humble cottage but also a room filled with the Spirit of the Lord. I approached Brother Wright's bedside and carefully placed a piece of bread to his lips. I then held the cup of water, that he might drink. As I departed, I saw tears in his eyes as he said, "God bless you, my boy." And God did bless me--with an appreciation for the emblems of the priesthood which I held."

Elder and Sister Perry - Episode 4

mormonchannel.org

From "In Memoriam, Elder L. Tom Perry"

Elder Perry made friends wherever he went. A story from his life illustrates his ability to form friendships in virtually any setting. After he and his family moved to New York City for work, he noticed how people kept to themselves on the streets and in the subways.

“I thought, what an unfriendly group this was,” he later remembered. Their behavior was in stark contrast to the inviting and social people from the California city his family had just left. He was so discouraged by the lack of warm and kind people around him that he was tempted to move his family back to California. His wife asked him if he’d tried yet to make a difference. He hadn’t. She asked, “Why don’t you try and see what happens?”

Tom devised a plan in his morning commute to get acquainted with somebody. He watched a man at his subway stop who went through the same routine each morning. The man arrived at the same time, bought a newspaper, stood at the same spot on the train platform, and sat in the same seat on the subway each day without variation.

Tom wanted to shake things up and see if he could form a friendship. He showed up early one day and stood on this man’s favorite platform location. Then he sat in the man’s preferred subway seat. After two days of doing this, Tom showed up to find the man had arrived earlier than usual and had claimed his spot on the platform. The man gave a little sneer at Tom, who then walked over and started laughing as he explained what he’d been doing.

“He thought that was the greatest thing he’d ever heard of,” Elder Perry said. He and the man got on the train and rode together. They soon became great friends. Each morning it was a race to see who could reach the platform first. Soon the race expanded to 3, then 4,then 10 commuters hustling good-naturedly to claim the prized spot.

“It livened up the whole platform,” Elder Perry said.Throughout the process, all involved became a close-knit group. One Christmas about 10 of them stood on the platform singing Christmas carols together. “I developed some of the greatest friends I’ve ever had.”18
