"“Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness; For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves. And inasmuch as men do good they shall in nowise lose their reward.” D&C 58:27–28"

When scripture study is combined with our prayers, we can of a certainty know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true."
