"Priesthood ordinances and covenants provide access to the fulness of the blessings promised to us by God, which are made possible by the Savior’s Atonement."
"As we renew and honor our covenants, our burdens can be lightened and we can continually become purified and strengthened."

"As we have considered the critical need to strengthen families and homes, we have felt that the Lord would have us encourage His beloved daughters to cheerfully cleave to their covenants. When covenants are kept, families are strengthened."

"The key to [missionary work] is in keeping our covenants. In no other way can we claim and demonstrate the powers of godliness."
