“Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.” —2 Nephi 2:25
“Lasting joy is found in focusing on our Savior, Jesus Christ, and living the gospel as demonstrated and taught by Him. The more we learn about, have faith in, and emulate Jesus Christ, the more we come to understand that He is the source of all healing, peace, and eternal progress.” —Jean B. Bingham
