The Priesthood: Do We Know What We Have?


“There exists today a great need for men and women to cultivate respect for each other as sons and daughters of God and reverence for our Father in Heaven and His priesthood—His power and authority.”

—Carole M. Stephens, “Do We Know What We Have?” October 2013 general conference
