Russell M. Nelson

“Be not discouraged when imperfections of yours and of your loved ones seem more than you can bear. And please, ‘continue in patience until ye are perfected.’

“Then you may be, as the Lord pleaded, ‘even as I am.’ You will be numbered among his elect and will be known of him at the glorious advent of his Second Coming” (“I’ll Go, I’ll Do, I’ll Be: Three Steps Toward A Monumental Life,” August 19,1986, BYU Devotional).
