Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. —Psalm 24:3-5
Just as the Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build, stone by stone, you are building a virtuous life, step by step. —Mary N. Cook
