Saying about M. Russell Ballard: Often the lack of clear direction and goals can waste away our time and energy and contribute to imbalance in our lives.

Tires in perfect balance can give a smooth and comfortable ride. So it is with life. The ride through mortality can be smoother for us when we strive to stay in balance.

Quotes about M. Russell Ballard: Because we love the Lord, we should be spiritually sensitive to moments when the powerful and important truths of the gospel can be shared with others. Perhaps more importantly, however, we should seek at all times to purify ourselves and to lead such worthy lives that the Light of Christ emanates from us in all that we say and do. Our day-to-day lives should stand as immutable witness of our faith in Christ.

Quote about M. Russell Ballard: There is great power in prayer. I strongly encourage personal and family prayer, which are important in building strong families.

If that has slipped away from your daily routine, may I suggest you put it back-beginning tonight!
