Messages of inspiration from President Thomas S. Monson

New Year's resolution

Four pledges for the new year: I will listen, I will learn, I will labor, I will love. As we fulfill these pledges, we can have the guidance of our Heavenly Father and in our own lives experience true joy. Now, I don't simply mean that we should make a wish, or that we should dream a dream, but rather determine to do that which we pledge to accomplish. We can, if we will. … Now, shall we go forward with such resolutions? Can we change our practices if such need changing? I declare that we can. — "A Time to Choose," BYU devotional, Jan. 16, 1973
