“Some of you do not now have a companion in your home. Some of you have lost your wife or husband or you may not yet have found a companion. In your ranks are some of the noblest members of the Church---faithful, valiant, striving to live the Lord’s commandments, to help build the kingdom on earth, and to serve your fellow men.
“Life holds so much for you. Take strength in meeting your challenges. There are so many ways to find fulfillment, in serving those who are dear to you, in doing well the tasks that are before you in your employment or in the home. The Church offers so much opportunity for you to help souls, beginning with your own, to find the joy of eternal life.” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Harold B. Lee, p. 114).
