Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.—Malachi 3:1
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
