Your Whole Soul

“Mormon teaches us that ‘charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever.’ The pure love of Christ. Let’s look at that. What does this phrase mean? We find part of the answer in Joshua: ‘Take diligent heed … to love the Lord your God … and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.’

Bonnie D. Parkin, Relief Society General President
Choosing Charity: That Good Part,” October 2003 General Conference

“Our offerings embrace both the work we do and the heart with which we do it. The Lord calls this ‘a broken heart and a contrite spirit.’ This union constitutes the soul. Amaleki spoke of offering ‘your whole souls’ to Jesus Christ. Brothers and sisters, the time is past when we can merely believe in this gospel; we must be passionate in our belief and in our commitment to Jesus Christ and His plan. We must know, unequivocally, that He is with us, that He will guide and direct us. In His name we shape our offering.”
