“Wherefore, thy soul shall be blessed, and thou shalt dwell safely with thy brother, Nephi; and thy days shall be spent in the service of thy God. Wherefore, I know that thou art redeemed, because of the righteousness of thy Redeemer; for thou hast beheld that in the fulness of time he cometh to bring salvation unto men.” – 2 Nephi 2:3
“As you lose your life in the service of Father in Heaven’s children, Satan’s temptations lose power in your life.” – Richard G. Scott
