"One of the remarkable characteristics of young wild sunflowers, in addition to growing in soil that is not hospitable, is how the young flower bud follows the sun across the sky. In doing so, it receives life-sustaining energy before bursting forth in its glorious yellow color. Like the young sunflower, when we follow the Savior of the world, the Son of God, we flourish and become glorious despite the many terrible circumstances that surround us. He truly is our light and life."
"Things which make us different…also provide us with that light…that will shine in an increasingly dark world."
"Our quest for light will be enhanced by our willingness to recognize when it shines in our lives."
"As we fill our hearts and homes with the Savior’s light…we will have the inner strength to withstand in every circumstance."
"If we search for it, there will always be a spiritual light that beckons to us, giving us the hope of rescue and relief."
"One place where we best seek to be filled with light and truth is in our own homes…Families are the Lord’s workshop on earth."
"Yes, we will make mistakes. Yes, we will falter. But as we seek to increase our love for God and strive to love our neighbor, the light of the gospel will surround and uplift us. The darkness will surely fade, because it cannot exist in the presence of light. As we draw near to God, He will draw near to us."
