Being Pioneers Today!

“A dictionary defines a pioneer as ‘one who goes before to prepare or open up the way for others to follow.’

Can we somehow muster the courage and steadfastness of purpose that characterized the pioneers of a former generation?

Can you and I, in actual fact, be pioneers?

I know we can be.

Oh, how the world needs pioneers today!

President Thomas S. Monson (Ensign, July 2013)

Honoring the Pioneers

“It is not enough to study or reenact the accomplishments of our pioneers. We need to identify the great, eternal principles they applied to achieve all they achieved for our benefit and then apply those principles to the challenges of our day. In that way we honor their pioneering efforts, and we also reaffirm our heritage and strengthen its capacity to bless our own posterity and those millions of our Heavenly Father’s children who have yet to hear and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are all pioneers in doing so.” -Elder Dallin H Oaks
