“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1
“When the challenges of mortality come, and they come for all of us, it may seem hard to have faith and hard to believe. At these times only faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement can bring us peace, hope, and understanding. Only faith that He suffered for our sakes will give us the strength to endure to the end. ” – Elder Robert D. Hales
