“Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking
unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” –
3 Nephi 19:13
“Just as the Holy Ghost strengthens us against evil, He also gives us the power to discern truth from falsehood. The truth that matters most is verified only by revelation from God. Our human reason and the use of our physical senses will not be enough. We live in a time when even the wisest will be hard-pressed to distinguish truth from clever deception.” – Henry B. Eyring
