Miscellaneous Pearls — Time-honored maxims from President Nelson

by President Russell M. Nelson

Time-honored maxims, by President Russell M. Nelson

  1. Hold on to the raft  (he was ejected from a river raft during a family river trip, the raft represents the straight and narrow path)
  2. The Book of Mormon is the word of God  (he shared the Book of Mormon with surgical colleagues, and insisted that they read it)
  3. The honors of men fade  (an airplane in which he was a passenger almost crashed, and he realized how precious life is, not accolades)
  4. The Lord uses the unlikely  (the Lord used him as the messenger to open up the eastern European countries to the Gospel)
  5. Care for others  (Church humanitarian efforts)
