  • "Being a refugee may be a defining moment in the lives of those who are refugees, but being a refugee does not define them. Like countless thousands before them, this will be a period—we hope a short period—in their lives. Some of them will go on to be Nobel laureates, public servants, physicians, scientists, musicians, artists, religious leaders, and contributors in other fields. Indeed, many of them were these things before they lost everything. This moment does not define them, but our response will help define us. “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”"

    —Patrick Kearon, "Refuge from the Storm"

Humility enables us to be better parents, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, neighbors and friends."

  • "And so we see that because of His Atonement, the Savior has the power to succor—to help—every mortal pain and affliction.

Faith in God engenders a love for the Sabbath; faith in the Sabbath engenders a love for God. A sacred Sabbath truly is a delight."

We belong."

    —Carole M. Stephens, "The Family is of God"
