“And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.” – Luke 14:27
“The central purpose of our [life] is to prepare to meet God and inherit the blessings He has promised to His worthy children. The Savior set the pattern during His earthly ministry and encouraged those who followed Him to become His disciples.” – L. Tom Perry
