Remember Who You Are

"One of this nation's leading pollsters, Richard Wirthlin, has identified through polls an expression of the basic needs of people in the United States. These needs are self-esteem, peace of mind, and personal contentment. I believe these are needs of God's children everywhere. How can these needs be satisfied? I suggest that behind each of these is the requirement to establish one's own personal identity as the offspring of God. All three needs, regardless of ethnic background, culture, or country, can be met if we look to the divinity that is within us."

James E. Faust, "Heirs to the Kingdom of God," Ensign, May 1995, 61–62

Wow, I needed this, too. I'm so glad the Lord is sending so many words of counsel, advice, and encouragement from leaders past and present. And I'm grateful it has always been that way.
