David A. Bednar Quotes

David A. Bednar Quotes: Becoming people of integrity and honesty does not occur quickly or all at once, nor is it merely a matter of greater personal discipline.

David A. Bednar Quote: As we strive to align our attitudes and actions with righteousness, then the Holy Ghost becomes for us today what the Liahona was for Lehi and his family in their day. The very factors that caused the Liahona to work for Lehi will likewise invite the Holy Ghost into our lives. And the very factors that caused the Liahona not to work anciently will likewise cause us to withdraw ourselves from the Holy Ghost today.

Quote about David A. Bednar: The issue is not going to church; rather, the issue is worshipping and renewing covenants as we attend church.

The issue is not going on a mission; rather, the issue is becoming a missionary and serving throughout our entire life with all of our heart, might, mind, and strength.
