“While the world is filled with uncertainty, there need not be uncertainty in your heart and mind about what is true and what is not,” President Russell M. Nelson, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, told young adults during a worldwide devotional on Sunday night. . . .

“If you are serious about rising up as a true millennial, I urge you to study the lives and teachings of these 16 prophets of God,” he said. “That study will change your life.”

President Nelson shared leadership principles he has learned from his interactions with President Joseph Fielding Smith, President Ezra Taft Benson, President Gordon B. Hinckley, and President Thomas S. Monson.

“Prophets of God have many attributes in common,” President Nelson said. “One is that each prophet understands the importance of divine law. The knowledge of divine law and effective, righteous leadership go hand in hand. The more of God’s laws you know—and more importantly the way you live them—the more effective your righteous leadership will be.”
