I would encourage you [youth] to receive a patriarchal blessing. Study it carefully and regard it as personal scripture to you—for that is what it is. A patriarchal blessing is the inspired and prophetic statement of your life’s mission together with blessings, cautions, and admonitions as the patriarch may be prompted to give…Receive your patriarchal blessing under the influence of fasting and prayer, and then read it regularly that you may know God’s will for you.
Ezra Taft Benson (Ensign, May 1986, p.43)

Always remember, there is no satisfactory substitute for the scriptures and the words of the living prophets. These should be your original sources. Ezra Taft Benson (via jquarez)

In the spiritual battles you are waging, I see you as today’s sons of Helaman. Remember well the Book of Mormon account of Helaman’s two thousand stripling warriors and how the teachings of their mothers gave them strength and faith. These marvelous mothers taught them to put on the whole armor of God, to place their trust in the Lord, and to doubt not. By so doing, not one of these young men was lost. (See Alma 53:10–23; Alma 56:41–56.)

It is not on the pinnacle of success and ease where men and women grow most. It is often down in the valley of heartache and disappointment and reverses where men and women grow into strong characters. Ezra Taft Benson
