President Russell M. Nelson

This Easter season, we can learn about Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, follow His teachings, and share His joy. Because He lives, we can know “peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come” (D&C 59:23).

President Russell M. Nelson, Adapted from “Because He Lives,” Ensign, March 2015, 74–75.

President Dallin H. Oaks

Easter is a holy day. It is a good time to think about what it means to take the sacrament. Jesus Christ lived, taught, died, and rose again so that all of us might have eternal life.

President Dallin H. Oaks, First Counselor in the First Presidency, Adapted from “Taking upon Us the Name of Jesus Christ,” Ensign, May 1985, 80–83.

President Henry B. Eyring

Easter reminds us of why we love Jesus Christ. The Savior promises that His faithful followers can become His beloved friends. He loves us. His arms are outstretched. I know that He lives.

President Henry B. Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, Adapted from “Come unto Me,” Ensign, May 2013, 22–25.

He is risen! He is risen!

Tell it out with joyful voice.

He has burst His three days’ prison;

Let the whole wide earth rejoice.

Death is conquered; man is free.

Christ has won the victory.

—“He Is Risen!” Hymns, no. 199
