“Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, I will declare unto you my doctrine.” —3 Nephi 11:31
“As you study your Aaronic Priesthood duties, you will see a clear charge to invite others to repent and improve. That does not mean we stand on a street corner shouting, “Repent ye!” More often, it means that we repent, we forgive, and as we minister to others, we offer the hope and peace that repentance brings—because we have experienced it ourselves.” —Douglas D. Holmes
