You are God's agents in the care of children He has entrusted to you. Let His divine influence remain in your hears as you teach and persuade.Russell M. Nelson

Whatever the cost of repentance, it is swallowed up in the joy of forgiveness.D. Todd Christofferson

The gospel of Jesus Christ encompasses much more than avoiding, overcoming, and being cleansed from sin and the bad influences in our lives; it also essentially entails doing good, being good, and becoming better. Repenting of our sins and seeking forgiveness are spiritually necessary, and we must always do so. But remission of sin is not the only or even the ultimate purpose of the gospel. To have our hearts changed by the Holy Spirit such that 'we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually' (Mosiah 5:2), as did King Benjamin's people, is the covenant responsibility we have accepted. This mighty change is not simply the result of working harder or developing greater individual discipline. Rather, it is the consequence of a fundamental change in our desires, our motives, and our natures made possible through the Atonement of Christ the Lord. Our spiritual purpose is to overcome both sin and the desire to sin, both the taint and the tyranny of sin.David A. Bednar

I love this book. It is so beautifully written by someone who I feel really understand the depth of Christ's purpose and the atonement. I will definitely be reading this book several more times through the years.

Loved it. It was very exciting and kept me guessing the whole time. I like how she had you thinking it would end a certain way and then surprised us with a totally different ending.
