A thought from the scriptures

"The Aaronic Priesthood years are critical years of preparation," Elder David B. Haight of the Quorum of the Twelve said during the October 1991 general conference. "The Lord knew young men would need these valuable teen years to prepare for life – precious years with meaningful, never-to-be forgotten spiritual experiences. You will face some crucial decisions, but hopefully you will take advantage of the seasoned experience and counsel of your loving parents and concerned priesthood leaders."
