“Our greatest and most important duty is to preach the Gospel”
The Work of Our Salvation
“The work of our salvation is hastening because of the internet. To learn how to share the gospel online, go to LDS Share at LDS.net. To learn how to use social media to share from LDS.org, go to the Church’s share website.”
Since they were having a layover in Salt Lake City on their way to Sun Valley Ski Resort he asked if they had ever seen the Mormon Tabernacle and Temple Square? They hadn’t and then he shifted into high gear with an enthusiastic invitation to visit. He arranged for a taxi to take them.

“Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day” (D&C 4:2).
What are “hard questions” in Mormonism? These are usually questions relating to Mormon history deliberately framed to shake the weak testimonies of both members and investigators of the gospel. Less often, these are doctrinal questions that are difficult to answer.
The Love of a True Friend
“The ultimate goal of missionary work in the Church is to invite all the inhabitants of the earth to come unto Christ. Six billion people throughout the world are waiting to hear the message of the restored gospel. We are the people so blessed with the charge and responsibility to carry forth that invitation and message.”
“May we ever be courageous and prepared to stand for what we believe, and if we must stand alone in the process, may we do so courageously, strengthened by the knowledge that in reality we are never alone when we stand with our Father in Heaven.”
President Thomas S. Monson
“As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have committed to walk in the path of discipleship. We have committed to follow the example of our Savior. Imagine how the world will be blessed and transformed for good when all members of the Lord’s Church live up to their true potential—converted in the depth of their souls and committed to building the kingdom of God.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
