Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy . . . . - D&C 11:13
"The visible expression of doing God's will often results in personal cheerfulness," said Elder Hans B. Ringger of the Seventy, "a silent, sunny brightness and a joy for life; feelings which are sung about in Psalms. . . ." Speaking at the April 1994 general conference, he said, "We cannot ask for more than to find the true meaning of life. `He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.' (Matt. 10:39.) We are promised that we will receive plentifully and gain eternal life when we give up those things the Lord requires of us."
