“I bless you to identify those things you can set aside so you can spend more time in the temple.” (President Russell M. Nelson)

“Most of my immediate family and friends are not members of our faith, so it was especially meaningful for us to have them witness our civil union and help them feel included in the festivities of the day.” (Irene Caso)

“One day, when we look back at the seeming coincidences of our lives, we will realize that perhaps they weren’t so coincidental after all.” (President Thomas S. Monson)
