“It may not always be easy, convenient or politically correct to stand for truth and right, but it is the right thing to do. Always. ”
M. Russell Ballard

“There are conversations going on about the Church constantly. Those conversations will continue whether or not we choose to participate in them. But we cannot stand on the sidelines while others, including our critics, attempt to define what our Church teaches... We are living in a world saturated with all kinds of voices.

M. Russell Ballard

“To innovate does not necessarily mean to expand; very often it means to simplify.”
M. Russell Ballard
