Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.—Ether 12:4
Your testimony will be your anchor and will give you the confidence to stand “steadfast and immovable” in keeping the Lord’s commandments in an uncertain world.—Mary N. Cook
This Day in Church History

1977: The First Presidency announces that the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will direct ecclesiastical matters and that the Presiding Bishopric will oversee temporal programs of the Church.
