  • How to Endure to the End.” This excerpt from a talk by Elder L. Tom Perry (1922–2015) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explains why enduring to the end is not a “do-it-yourself project” and what sources you can turn to for help.

  • Patricia’s Courage.” In this Friend article, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares how his wife, Sister Patricia Holland, reminded him to have faith and not give up.
