"It is not easy for children to stay clean and pure in today's world. There are times when it becomes hard for them to tell right from wrong. We need to teach our children, as Alma taught his son Corianton, 'Wickedness never was happiness' (Alma 41:10). Teach them to stay on the Lord's side of the line. Hold family home evening regularly. Hold family prayer twice a day, if possible. Teach them to love the scriptures and how to experience the sweet answer to individual prayer. Teach them to understand and recognize how the Holy Ghost communicates with us and how it comes as promptings, thoughts, impressions, and feelings. Teach the sacred significance of the atoning sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ." - Ben B. Banks, "Take Time for Your Children," Ensign, November 1993, p. 30

"I believe that every active member of the Church knows a lost sheep who needs the attention and love of a caring shepherd." - Ben B. Banks, "Feed My Sheep," Ensign (CR), November 1999, p. 9

Climbing steep mountain passes on a bike requires the right attitude to get to the right altitude. It’s the same with life. By setting worthwhile goals and keeping your eyes fixed on them, you will learn self-discipline and accomplish much. Yes, there were times when climbing the steep mountain grades was as much as I could bear, but I didn’t give up, because I was fixed in my purpose. - Ben B. Banks, “The Road We Call Life,” Ensign (CR) May 2002
