  • “Perhaps the Lord needs such men on the outside of His Church to help it along,” said the late Elder Orson F. Whitney of the Quorum of the Twelve. “They are among its auxiliaries, and can do more good for the cause where the Lord has placed them, than anywhere else. They are our partners in a certain sense.”

  • Ward leaders are not the “best” people; they are merely the best people for the callings they have at the time they have them. And you are the best person for the calling you have — as long as you strive to make it so.

    Here is the great secret that I have learned in my 58 years of life in the villages of Mormondom — there is no calling in which you cannot earn the love and honor of those whom you serve, or serve with.

    There is no calling that will get you to heaven faster than another.

    There are no members so extraordinary that they can’t be replaced with others who will do their old callings well enough — or better.
