Convert retention

I plead with you brethren, I ask of you, each of you, to become part of this great effort. Every convert is precious. Every convert is a son or daughter of God. Every convert is a great and serious responsibility. - President Gordon B. Hinckley


We as members should be at our best. Our lives should reflect the teachings of the gospel, and our hearts and voices ever ready to share the truth. . . . In building a bridge to the investigator, the new convert or the less-active member, when we do our part the Lord does His. - President Thomas S. Monson

Priesthood power

[Priesthood] is the power to bless, to heal and to administer the saving ordinances of the gospel. Righteous priesthood authority is most needed within the walls of our own homes. It must be exercised in great love. . . . Worldly power often is employed ruthlessly. However, priesthood power is invoked only through those principles of righteousness by which the priesthood is governed. - President James E. Faust

Holders of the holy priesthood can accomplish mighty feats of heroism, bravery and service through faith in that sacred power. - Elder Jack H Goaslind


The eternal values haven't changed a bit from the original. - Elder David B. Haight
