Inspirational Thought

"In 1986, President Thomas S. Monson said: 'Of course we will face fear, experience ridicule, and meet opposition. Let us have the courage to defy the consensus, the courage to stand for principle.  Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval. . . .  Remember that all men have their fears, but those who face their fears with [faith] have courage as well.'  President Monson's counsel is timeless!  So I plead with you, my dear brothers and sisters: Day after day, on your path toward your eternal destiny, increase your faith.  Proclaim your faith! Let your faith show!"

—President Russell M. Nelson,
"Let Your Faith Show," Ensign, May 2014
