            Adam's Role In Bringing Us Mortality

            Canaries With Gray On Their Wings

            The Father Who Cares
President Joseph Fielding Smith, Jan 2006 Ensign

Joseph Fielding Smith was long noted for the depth of his knowledge of the gospel and the scriptures. He served as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for more than 55 years before he was sustained as a counselor in the First Presidency in October 1965 and then as Church President in 1970. In October 1967, he spoke of the blessing for mankind that is known as the Fall of Adam.

President Thomas S. Monson, June 2010 Ensign

Nearly 60 years ago, while I was serving as a young bishop, Kathleen McKee, a widow in my ward, passed away. Among her things were three pet canaries. Two, with perfect yellow coloring, were to be given to her friends. The third, Billie, had yellow coloring marred by gray on his wings. Sister McKee had written in a note to me: "Will you and your family make a home for him? He isnít the prettiest, but his song is the best."

President James E. Faust, September 2006 Ensign

Some time ago a father of six children who had the sole responsibility for raising the family, beginning when the youngest was in diapers, told of the struggles of doing so alone. One night he came home from work faced with the problems of being both father and mother and felt unusually burdened with his responsibilities. One of his appreciative daughters, age 12, approached him eagerly after having laid on his dresser a rock...

            Forgiveness

            Gambling

            The Godhead and The Plan of Salvation
President Gordon B. Hinckley, November 2005 Ensign

Somehow forgiveness, with love and tolerance, accomplishes miracles that can happen in no other way.

My dear brothers and sisters, I thank my Father in Heaven that He has prolonged my life to be a part of these challenging times. I thank Him for the opportunity of service. I have no desire but to do all that I can...

President Gordon B. Hinckley, May 2005 Ensign

If you have never been involved in poker games or other forms of gambling, don't start. If you are involved, then quit now while you can do so.

My dear brethren, weíve had a wonderful meeting. I wish to endorse all that has been said and to leave my blessing with you.

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, May 2017 Ensign

Because we have the truth about the Godhead and our relationship to Them, we have the ultimate road map for our journey through mortality.

Our first article of faith declares, "We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." We join other Christians in this belief in a Father and a Son and a Holy Ghost...

            The Master Bridge Builder

            Of Things That Matter Most

            Perspective Is Everything
President Thomas S. Monson, January 2008 Ensign

Jesus Christ was the supreme architect and builder of bridges for you, for me, for all humankind. He has built the bridges over which we must cross if we are to reach our heavenly home.

Many years ago I read a book titled The Way to the Western Sea by David S. Lavender. It provides a fascinating account of the epic journey of...

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, November 2010 Ensign

If life and its rushed pace and many stresses have made it difficult for you to feel like rejoicing, then perhaps now is a good time to refocus on what matters most.

Itís remarkable how much we can learn about life by studying nature. For example, scientists can look at the rings of trees and make educated...

I did not provoke the fight, so I feel no remorse for what I forged to do. We were arguing, and seeing that I was right and He was wrong, He decided to fight to cover for His stupidity. I don't know what He was thinking because I was a good 50 pounds lighter than Him and much quicker. He swung at me first, but being in the top of condition, I was able to block the punch neatly with my head. Whereupon, I immediately jumped to the ground - knocking him down on top of me. Then I deftly placed my ear in his mouth and ruthlessly poked His finger several times with my eye...

            The Worth of A Teacher
A continuing series giving insights for your study and use of
"The Family: A Proclamation to the World."

January 2005 Ensign

"All human beings - male and female - are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose."

Elder David J. Barnett, March 2005 Ensign

In John 15:12 the Savior gives the commandment to "love one another, as I have loved you." He then tells His disciples to "go and bring forth fruit" (v. 16) as an expression of that love. Such counsel applies to all of us: we show our love for the Savior and for others by "bringing forth fruit," which includes guiding souls to the gospel of Jesus Christ through missionary work.

President Thomas S. Monson, April 2010 Ensign

Some time ago three young boys were discussing their fathers. One spoke out, "My dad is bigger than your dad," to which another replied, "Well, my dad is smarter than your dad." The third boy countered, "My dad is a doctor." Then, turning to one boy, he taunted in derision, "And your dad is only a teacher."
