Let your hearts be comforted concerning Zion; for all flesh is in mine hands; be still and know that I am God.—Doctrine and Covenants 101:16
Few of us will ever have to face an angry mob, but there is a war going on in this world in which our most cherished and basic doctrines are under attack. The Lord needs us to be brave, steadfast, and immovable warriors who will defend His plan and teach the upcoming generations His truths.—Bonnie L. Oscarson
