“If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things—that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal.” –
“The spirit of revelation is real—and can and does function in our individual lives and in the Church.” – David A. Bednar
