- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! God gave us each the gift of agency. Now we must choose how we are going to use it in our lives. Will we choose to follow Christ or turn away from his teachings? 

Check back tomorrow for more inspiration.

Scripture

Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.2 Nephi 2:27

Quote

When we left our premortal existence and entered mortality, we brought with us the gift of agency. Our goal is to obtain celestial glory, and the choices we make will, in large part, determine whether or not we reach our goal. Thomas S. Monson

This Day in Church History

1839: Romania Bunnell (Pratt Penrose), later a pioneer, physician, and women’s advocate, is born in Washington, Indiana.
1844: Brigham Young is transfigured and has the appearance of Joseph Smith. This occurred in a public meeting which was meant to settle Sidney Rigdon’s claim to leadership. That afternoon, the Saints voted to sustain the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, rather than Sidney Rigdon, as the leaders of the Church.
1974: U.S. president Richard M. Nixon announces his resignation. Several Saints played a significant role, including future Apostle, D. Todd Christofferson, law clerk to Judge John J. Sirica. Christofferson and Sirica were the first to hear the Nixon tapes, which resulted in the president’s resignation.
