The Tender Mercies of the Lord

The Book of Mormon
1 Nephi 1:20
"...behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance."

"Knowledge of truth, combined with proper regard for it, and its faithful observance, constitutes true education. The mere stuffing of the mind with a knowledge of facts is not education. The mind must not only possess a knowledge of truth, but the soul must revere it, cherish it, love it as a priceless gem."

—Joseph F. Smith, Gospel Doctrine (1986), 269

"Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. . . . Peace comes through hope. "
—President James E. Faust
Ensign, Nov. 1999, 59
