    Elder Richard G. Scott

    Why is it important for me to have a strong testimony?

    Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares some of his thoughts on this subject.

    • A strong testimony is the unshakable foundation of a secure, meaningful life where peace, confidence, happiness, and love can flourish.

    • A strong testimony gives peace, comfort, and assurance.

    • Your testimony will be fortified as you exercise faith in Jesus Christ, in His teachings, and in His limitless power to accomplish what He has promised.

    • As your testimony is fortified, Satan will try harder to tempt you. Resist his efforts. You will become stronger and his influence on you weaker.

    • A powerful testimony is grounded in the personal assurance that the Holy Ghost can guide and inspire our daily acts for good.
