Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. —Matthew 11:29-30
Partaking of the sacrament each week breathes hope into the divinity within us, and we remember our Savior, Jesus Christ. —Rosemary M. Wixom
