Thoughts from Elder Lenhard...(Side note from Mallory: I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get the text to not run into the sidebar in this post. I tried several different things, and nothing is working. Sorry! I will work to fix it.)

Are You Sleeping through the Restoration?

Second Counselor in the First Presidency

There is too much at stake for us as individuals, as families, and as Christ’s Church to give only a halfhearted effort to this sacred work

"I testify that the cleansing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the transformative power of the Holy Ghost can heal and rescue mankind. It is our privilege, our sacred duty, and our joy to heed the Savior’s call to follow Him with a willing mind and full purpose of heart. Let us “shake off the chains with which [we] are bound, and come forth out of obscurity, and arise from the dust.”11 
"Let us be awake and not be weary of well-doing, for we “are laying the foundation of a great work,”12 even preparing for the return of the Savior. Brethren, when we add the light of our example as a witness to the beauty and power of restored truth, we will not sleep through the Restoration. Of this I testify and leave you my blessing in the sacred name of our Master, even Jesus Christ, amen."
