As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.—Ezekiel 34:12
We can thrive and bloom if we are rooted in our love of the Savior. —Quentin L. Cook
