“The Lord in his great infinite goodness doth bless and prosper those who put their trust in him.” – Helaman 12:1
“By living welfare principles, we can develop self-reliance. The welfare program requires that we develop self-reliance and live providently. Provident living requires us to develop proper attitudes—a willingness to forego luxuries, to avoid excess, and to fully use what we have—learning to live within our means.” – Robert D. Hales
