Richard J. Codey
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.

Strong testimony is the foundation upon which conversion is established. Testimony alone is not and will not be enough to protect us in the latter-day storm of darkness and evil in which we are living.
David A. Bednar
