  4. ““What we lacked in space we made up for in excitement. One night while the rest of our family slept, Nada washed some clothes by hand in the sink. She had brought along some rope to fashion a clothesline just in case. With square footage at a premium, she crawled over the air mattress, across the bed, over a stack of luggage, and through a window to reach an adjoining roof. The handy, flat surface was walled by towering buildings on all sides. As she was tying her clothesline, an armed SWAT team descended upon her and her laundry suddenly out of the darkness in full force like ninja warriors. They scared the wits out of Nada but, fortunately, were disarmed quickly by the Batman undies draped across the makeshift clothesline. We found out later that the Drexlers, in the room next door, had reported noises on the roof, precipitating the all-out raid."

  5. “A growing number of religious leaders and scholars have chosen to jettison the word "cult" in describing Mormonism, fully cognizant of the offense it causes Latter-day Saints and equally aware of how seriously misleading the word can be to those who know little about the Church. It is easy to dismiss another person who sees things differently, but it is difficult to pay the price to understand what that person really believes and feels. It is easy to pigeonhole, categorize, marginalize, or even demonize someone you don't know. On the other hand, it is much more difficult to believe the worst about a friend you have come to trust and love.”

  10. “Each step, each day of my journey should move me progressively closer to Him. He doesn't expect or even want me to "run faster" than I am able. In fact, there may be days when I can't run at all. I may just be able to walk, crawl, or scoot, but my job is to be "diligent" or faithful as I move forward—no matter how small my progression.”

  12. ““If I based my feelings of self-worth on who I was externally, my self-esteem would plummet every time I got a new wrinkle, stretch mark, pimple, or dimple. Our bodies can change very quickly.

  18. ““[This location] seemed to have been held in reserve to meet the occasion, for none but Saints full of faith, and trusting in the power of God, could have established that city,” she wrote later. “To narrate what transpired within the seven years, in which we built and occupied Nauvoo, the beautiful, would fill many volumes. . . . Some of the most important events of my life transpired within that brief term.””

  20. “Unlike chicks that are driven by instinct to seek their mother's protection, Christ's "children" make the choice to accept or reject his protective power. Christ will not subvert their agency even when he knows the pain their wrong choices will cause them. He warns, rebukes, and allows natural consequences to impact people when they sin. He teaches, guides, and allows blessings to flow when they do right. They are allowed to perish or prosper as they choose.”
