“Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me.” —Doctrine & Covenants 19:23
“At times you young women may feel you are having an experience like Nephi. The Lord has not asked you to build a ship, but to build your life. You don’t yet know what your completed mortal life looks like. But your Father in Heaven knows and can guide you one step at a time. He is asking you to build your life according to His guidelines because He is the One who created you and wants you ready to return back home with Him someday. ” —Sharon G. Larsen
