“And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent, and coming to the Lord their God, then is my soul filled with joy; then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me.” – Alma 29:10
“Fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith.” – Thomas S. Monson
