“And we ask thee, Holy Father, that thy servants may go forth from this house armed with thy power, and that thy name may be upon them, and thy glory be round about them, and thine angels have charge over them.” —Doctrine & Covenants 109:22
“An old proverb says that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step,5 so watch your step. May the joy of our fidelity to the highest and best within us be ours as we keep our love and our marriages, our society and our souls, as pure as they were meant to be.” —Jeffrey R. Holland
