“Saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning.” – Joel 2:12
“Sometimes I think we misunderstand obedience. We may see obedience as an end in itself, rather than a means to an end. Perhaps there is a different metaphor that can explain why we obey the commandments of God. Maybe obedience is not so much the process of bending, twisting, and pounding our souls into something we are not. Instead, it is the process by which we discover what we truly are made of.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
