Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. —Doctrine and Covenants 128:22
As you read the scriptures, you will come to know that the Savior is not only the light and life of the world; He is our one bright hope. Through Him you can have the hope of returning to live with your Father in Heaven. Through Him you can repent and overcome the things that will keep you from being steadfast. Through Him you can find the strength and courage to press forward even when the winds of resistance blow. —Elaine S. Dalton
