Quotes I've come across lately

E. M. Russell Ballard, May 2012 Ensign- The most important cause of our lifetime is our families. If we will devote ourselves to this cause, we will improve every other aspect of our lives.

E. David A. Bednar, Engisn May 2009- As we talked with these stalwart leaders, I always asked this question: "What have you learned as a temple president that you wish you had better understood when you were a General Authority?" As I listened to their answers, I discovered a consistent theme that I would summarize as follows: "I have come to understand better the protection available through our temple covenants and what it means to make an acceptable offering of temple worship. There is a difference between church-attending, tithe-paying members who occasionally rush into the temple to go through a session and those members who faithfully and consistently worship in the temple."

Pres. Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign Jan. 2011- A home teaching call is to be accepted as if extended to you personally by the Lord Jesus Christ…Know well those you are to home teach…Above all, be a genuine friend to the individuals and families you teach...A friend makes more than a dutiful visit each month. A friend is more concerned about helping people than getting credit. A friend cares. A friend loves. A friend listens, and a friend reaches out...Do not settle for mediocrity in this great priesthood program of home teaching. Be an excellent home teacher in every facet of the work. Be a real shepherd of your flock.
