2017-04-16 President's Message

Dear Sisters and Elders,

I invite you to ponder the following teachings and re-commit yourself to putting God first in your lives. I promise that, as you do, peace, strength, safety and purpose will fill your life.
"We may need to let go of the world so that we can hang on to eternity." Elder Gary Sabin
"The Kingdom of God or nothing!" President John Taylor
"If you have not chosen the kingdom of God first it will, in the end make no difference what you have chosen instead." Elder Neal A. Maxwell
"Few men have ever knowingly and deliberately chosen to reject God and his blessings.  Rather, we learn from the scriptures that because the exercise of faith has always appeared to be more difficult than relying on the things more immediately at hand, carnal man has tended to transfer his trust in God to material things...Whatever thing a man sets his heart and his trust in most is his god; and if his god doesn't also happen to be the true and living God of Israel, that man is laboring in idolatry." President Spencer W. Kimball
"When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives." President Ezra Taft Benson
"Put God first, regardless of the trials you face. Love God. Have faith in Christ. And entrust yourself to Him in all things." Elder Koichi Aoyagi
