Dallin H. Oaks - The Challenge to Become

“It is not even enough for us to be convinced of the gospel; we must act and think so that we are converted by it. In contrast to the institutions of the world, which teach us to know something, the gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to become something.”

Russell M. Nelson - We Are All Children of God

During the Savior’s earthly mission, He constantly ministered to those who were excluded, marginalized, judged, overlooked, abused, and discounted. As His followers, can we do anything less? The answer is no! We believe in freedom, kindness, and fairness for all of God’s children!

I plead with us to work together for peace, for mutual respect, and for an outpouring of love for all of God’s children.
