Plug In to the Source of Power

“Every time you plug in your phone, use it as a reminder to ask yourself if you have plugged in to the most important source of spiritual power—prayer and scripture study, which will charge you with inspiration through the Holy Ghost.”

Randall L. Ridd, “The Choice Generation,” Ensign, May 2014, 57.

What Do You Desire?

“You are growing up with one of the greatest tools for good in the history of man: the Internet. … With it you can accomplish great things in a short period of time, or you can get caught up in endless loops of triviality that waste your time and degrade your potential. With the click of a button, you can access whatever your heart desires. That’s the key—what does your heart desire? What do you gravitate toward? Where will your desires lead?”

Randall L. Ridd, Second Counselor in the Young Men General Presidency, “The Choice Generation,” Ensign, May 2014, 56.
