“The voice of the Lord commanded us that we should bear record of [this book]; wherefore, to be obedient unto the commandments of God, we bear testimony of these things. ” —The Testimony of Three Witnesses, Book of Mormon
“To be a witness of God at all times and in all places reflects both how we live and how we speak. I promise you that as you pray often and sincerely for opportunities to “stand as a witness of God,” those opportunities will come, and those who seek more light and knowledge will be put before you. As you respond to spiritual promptings, the Holy Ghost will carry your words to the heart of another, and one day the Savior will confess you before His Father.” —Neil L. Andersen
