Fridge Quotes

  1. “Life is not really a constant vertical climb. The process of spiritual growth and maturity seems to be one of climbing, pausing for rest and refreshment and reassurance, and then resuming the climb, on and on to the top. I am convinced that if we will seriously call upon the Lord and ask him regularly to bless us to feel what we ought to feel and see what we ought to see, we will feel the divine hand upon our shoulder, nudging us onward and upward, all the days of our lives.”
    Robert L. Millet

  2. “No matter what I have been called to do in the Church, it has always seemed to me to be a tremendous privilege. I have found that service does something to you. It changes perspective; it stretches the soul; it refreshes and uplifts; it elevates our thinking and our feelings; it draws us closer to the Savior, who spends all of his time in selfless service to Heavenly Father and all of his children.”
    David S. Baxter

  3. “Any profane or mocking speech, writing, or action directed toward or about Deity or other sacred things is blasphemy. Likewise, anything that shows contempt, disdain, or deliberate disrespect for God or sacred things is blasphemy.”

  4. “The 1920 scriptures committee included another innovation in the new edition: a “Pronouncing Vocabulary.” The Book of Mormon contains 337 proper names, more than half of which are unique to the volume. Without a standard to guide them, readers pronounced the names in different ways.”
    William W. Slaughter, Richard E. Turley, Jr.

  6. “Our Mediator, our Redeemer, our Brother, our Advocate with the Father died for our sins and the sins of all mankind. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the foreordained but voluntary act of the Only Begotten Son of God. He offered His life as a redeeming ransom for us all. His mission, His ministry among men, His teachings of truth, His acts of mercy, His unwavering love for us prompts our gratitude and warms our hearts.”

  8. “Because we are largely a product of what occupies our minds and because our feelings and actions are so inextricably linked to our thoughts, we must see to it that what we think about is worthy of a son or daughter of God striving for exaltation in the celestial kingdom. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 42).”

  9. “It just may be that the most significant and enduring effort in which we as members of the Lord’s Church can choose to be involved, the most elevated and enriching endeavor we may undertake, is to live in such a manner that the Spirit of the Lord can be, as promised, our constant companion. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 40).”

  10. “We cannot, at least not for very long, operate simply by sheer grit and willpower; to do so proves to be both spiritually exhausting and emotionally discouraging. We need help. That help comes to us from God and is mediated through his Holy Spirit. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 40).”

  11. “Those who suggest that the present Church is not progressive enough, that it needs to move faster toward this or that social or political or moral end, act outside the bounds of propriety. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 25).”

  12. “To the extent that those who have received the fulness of the gospel honor their covenants, particularly those promises made in holy places, they will grow in spiritual power and stand as a stark contrast to the vain and pathetic heroes of the world. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 14).”

  13. “Our economic challenges are merely a symptom of far more serious moral problems: gluttony, greed, man’s inhumanity to man, and his disregard for his fellows. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 12).”

  14. “The Second Coming is not something we need fear or be unduly alarmed about. It can and should be a glorious and long-awaited day for men and women who have grown weary of waywardness, who have had their patience stretched by the allurements and tauntings of a world engulfed in wickedness. (Robert L. Millet, Living in the Eleventh Hour [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 2014], 2).”

  15. “Whether theological or practical, addressed to a general audience or particular associates of Smith, the revelations generally called the recipients to action. (Dean C. Jessee, Ronald K. Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xxvii).”

  16. “Of all the earliest texts that Joseph Smith authored or dictated, including the manuscripts of the Book of Mormon, only a few letters and the preface of the Book of Mormon are in his own first-person voice. (Dean C. Jessee, Ronald K. Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xxv).”

  17. “As with Joseph Smith’s writings in general, most of his letters were dictated to scribes or written by assignment on his behalf. Of his outgoing correspondence, only about two dozen extant letters bear the marks of his own pen. Though few, these letters provide a perspective from which one can begin to separate Smith’s own thoughts and feelings from those of people who wrote for him, revealing dimensions of his personality and character not conveyed through the filter of a scribe. (Dean C. Jessee, Ronald K. Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xxii).”

Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xxi).”

  19. “Although Joseph Smith occasionally wrote himself, he delegated most record-keeping tasks to others while retaining ultimate responsibility. (Dean C. Jessee, Ronald K. Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xvii).”
    Print
     
  20. “It is difficult to overemphasize the importance of the Book of Mormon to Joseph Smith and his early followers. “They had in their possession,” wrote scholar Terryl Givens, “a recovered record whose very existence was seen as prophetic proof that the final dispensation was truly arrived.” (Dean C. Jessee, Ronald K. Esplin, Richard Lyman Bushman, and Matthew J. Grow, The Joseph Smith Papers, Documents, vol. 1: July 1828–June 1831 [Salt Lake City: The Church Historian’s Press, 2013], xxxii).”
