Published: Monday, Sept. 1 2014 8:51 p.m. MDT

The changing of the seasons often cause us to adjust our schedules and in the process re-evaluate our priorities, recommit to our goals and develop a plan for tackling the hectic holiday season.

To provide you with some extra encouragement and perspective during this transition, we've compiled 100 of the images we've created over the past year based on messages from current and former leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

This list is in no way all-inclusive. However, we hope that the quotes included here will provide you with a spiritual boost.

"Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the heart" Proverbs 21:2 This always reassures me that, if my heart is in the right place, I can do no wrong that I can't learn from and fix.

I wish I could tweet each one. Is there a way?

Buena Vista, VA

I wish I could simply download the whole thing in list form, and in fact, could actually just read it all on one page. It is a real lot to ask someone to click 100 times. Maybe if I was retired...

I really like this quote by Marvin J. Ashton. "You can't get enough of what you don't need because what you don't need won't satisfy."

Provo, UT

Does the desnews really think I'm going to click thru all 100 of these? Please put them in a searchable list on a single page. Please, please, please!

Orem, UT

This is great! I think it would be a good idea to make a book using these quotes. I know I would buy it!

If you are wondering, 100 is a quote from Rex D Pingar: "If we, like the Savior, have the faith to put our trust in our Father in Heaven, to submit to His will, the true spirit of peace will come as a witness and strength that he has heard and answered our prayers"

To be uplifted so graciously with quotes from leaders of the Church - past and present - is wonderful. to be able to share them in social media is a generous effort to acquaint more of our fellow sojourners with the wisdom that is so needed in the world today. Thank you for such a wonderful and inspiring compilation.

For those who feel that 100 clicks is too much to do at one time, consider opening a separate tab in your browser and reading however much your patience can handle. Then go read about the calamities of the day or what a celebrity is doing or what sports figure has accomplished. When you need a break from the world, click that lonely tab and read a few more uplifting and support quotes. There are also Scriptural passages that may consume more than 100 verses. I guess you may want to take a television break to watch a bit of a soap opera to round out your study.

What a remarkable time we live in to be able to easily add such beauty and wisdom to our lives.

We could learn a lot of good from another , one does not have to be mormon to be a brother , sister, father, mother to relate, or even a saint. no matter who u pray to, we all come from the Same God.

Riverton, UT

Would love to read them, but I'm not clicking 100 times to do it - sorry.

Provo, UT

Yes, I agree with above posts. Please reconsider the formatting for an article like this. Thank you.


This was approved. "Make the decision to do what Jesus Christ has asked you to do." - M. Russell Ballard.

Our Lord did away with the old law and gave us a new one written in our hearts.
"To love thy neighbor as thy self."
The power of that statement is diminished because of Satan's influence over our choices.
So a constant battle between good and evil rages in the minds of those who truly follow Christ.

To simply be happy that the Lord Jesus Christ forgives your sins and weaknesses is not honoring your oaths to God.
When you repent and promise to sin that sin no more. You are making a covenant to do better, repair what that sin's damage has done to others, if possible.

Unrepentant sin affects your mind, so you would have become in bondage to that sin.

How this is possible?
Satan was given power over the flesh....That power is the survival logic that is necessary for all life forms to operate in physical existence/reality.

It/They are Advanced Artificial Intelligence Programs. Created by God.
