“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: ” – Ecclesiastes 3:1
“Commit yourself to put the Lord first in your life, keep His commandments, and do what the Lord’s servants ask you to do. Then your feet are on the pathway to eternal life. You do not know what will happen. Do your best on what is fundamental and personal and then trust in the Lord and His timing.” – Dallin H. Oaks
