“Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness” – Doctrine & Covenants 58:27
“Great things are brought about and burdens are lightened through the efforts of many hands….Imagine what the millions of Latter-day Saints could accomplish in the world if we functioned like a beehive in our focused, concentrated commitment to the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.” – M. Russell Ballard
