When we love God, we make and strive to keep our sacred covenants. I testify that living gospel commandments brings anyone untold blessings, allowing us to become our very best selves—exactly who God wants us to be.
Often the Lord calls us to do difficult things that we may not be sure we want to do but that will bring great blessings.

Change yourself. Decide today “I am going to make the Church and kingdom of God the center of my life!” Position yourself firmly inside God’s kingdom; allow it to encompass you.
"Each of us must accommodate the mixture of reason and revelation in our lives. The gospel not only permits but requires it. An individual who concentrates on either side solely and alone will lose both balance and perspective."
Whether you are in a position to extend a calling or to receive one, you must gain a testimony that we are called of God by prophecy and revelation.
The call to serve the Lord may come in small, large, or unexpected ways. Prepare yourself now to answer the call however it comes.
Our willingness to follow the Brethren, the called local and general leaders of the Church, is a show of our humility and obedience to God.
When doing the Lord's work, failure is not an option. Creative leadership in our callings can help us discern the needs and talents of those we serve.
