Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes

"[The] persevering steadiness of my mother, her belief in seeing things through, and her great ability to love and learn, listen and change, helped keep me alive through all the years of pain and nightmare that were to come.

It never occurred to her to give up."

We establish a divine bond with each other as we approach God together through family prayer, gospel study, and Sunday worship." - Author: Dieter F. Uchtdorf
