  3. “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.”

  5. “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.”

  7. “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.”

  8. “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.”

  9. “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.”

  10. “If a novelist were to write a historical novel based on Eliza’s life, that novelist might feel the
    need to create a character like James Walker. But Walker—who printed Eliza’s first
    published poems, sought her out at a dance, wrote her a love poem, and was finally
    spurned—was real.

  11. ““[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.””

  14. “Sabbath observance is for rest, for worship, for remembering blessings, and blessing the lives of others. Those who keep it holy discover that the Sabbath is a sign of keeping our covenants with the Lord and the Lord’s sanctifying us. In Moses’ day, defilement of the Sabbath could result in physical death. In our day, it can result in spiritual death.

  15. “The days started early and ended late for 41-year-old James Willie.
