“It isn’t enough to just be on the journey; we must be awake to our duty and continue with faith as we draw upon the comforting, strengthening, enabling, and healing power of the Atonement.”

“Besides steadfast, determined service, another way we choose to grow up unto the Lord is through our willingness to ‘press forward’ in faith—even when we don’t quite know what to do.”

Anne C. Pingree, Second Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency

“…In this ongoing process of growing up unto the Lord, we will be asked to do all we can, in some cases, even more than we know how to do. The challenges may be formidable and the route sometimes unknown. But inevitable wrong turns notwithstanding, those who strive to be truly Christlike—with steadfast determination to serve others and a willingness to press forward in faith—can come to echo this grand spiritual truth shared by Nephi as he continued his shipbuilding: ‘And I … did … pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things.’ To be shown ‘great things’—what a gift, what a blessing to those who have chosen ‘to grow up unto the Lord.’ ”

“It does not take much living to find out that life almost never turns out the way you planned it. Adversity and affliction come to everyone. Do you know anyone who would not like to change something about themselves or their circumstances? And yet I am sure you know many who go forward with faith. You are drawn to those people, inspired by them, and even strengthened by their examples.”

Mary Ellen Smoot, Relief Society General President

“We must walk by faith. That means stepping into the dark unknowns because we believe that Heavenly Father is awaiting us…with open arms.”

“Faith always has an element of doing…Service and personal progress projects are real nourishers of the word or doctrine. Our efforts to do really feed our efforts to know and to grow the word.”

“Mortality is the time to learn to walk by faith. It is the time to learn to be doers of the word, not hearers only. It is the time to gain knowledge and master some wisdom. It is the time to realize that it is not enough to know; we must also act on knowledge with wisdom. And finally, by the Lord’s definition, it is the time to learn how to love one another.”

Dwan J. Young, Primary General President
Prepare to Teach His Children,” October 1983 General Conference

“Be aware that growth is a process. It is never fully and finally achieved; it’s just a steady picking our way upward along the mountain path. Ultimately the process requires hope and faith. We have potential for development much like the seed Alma so eloquently described which, when tended and nurtured, will burst into full flower. Once the preparation is completed, full growth is realized only when we have the faith to venture forth.”

Dwan J. Young, Primary General President
