Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord is able to do all things according to his will, for the children of men, if it so be that they exercise faith in him? Wherefore, let us be faithful to him. —1 Nephi 7:12
My dear friends, your faith did not begin at birth, and it will not end at death. Faith is a choice. Strengthen your faith, and live to be deserving of the Savior’s approving words: “Great is thy faith.” As you do, I promise that your faith, through the grace of Jesus Christ, will one day allow you to stand with those you love, clean and pure in the presence of God. —Neil L. Andersen
