Thomas Becket
Remember the sufferings of Christ, the storms that were weathered... the crown that came from those sufferings which gave new radiance to the faith... All saints give testimony to the truth that without real effort, no one ever wins the crown.
8
David A. Bednar
Testimony is the beginning of and a prerequisite to continuing conversion. testimony is a point of departure; it is not an ultimate destination. Strong testimony is the foundation upon which conversion is established. testimony alone is not and will not be enough to protect us in the latter-day storm of darkness and evil in which we are living.

David A. Bednar
Conversion is an offering of self, of love, and of loyalty we give to God in gratitude for the gift of testimony.
10
David A. Bednar
We should remember that bearing a heartfelt testimony is only a beginning. We need to bear testimony, we need to mean it, and most importantly we need consistently to live it. We need to both declare and live our testimonies.
