Best Thomas S. Monson Quotes

Last night our beloved prophet let this mortal life and continued his life with what I would imagine to be a joyful reunion with his sweet wife on the other side of the veil.  As many of you know, the past year has been one of the hardest yet BEST years of my life. By creating a routine of daily personal, family, and spouse scripture reading I have found more peace, joy, and happiness through the plan of happiness.  It was words of leaders like Thomas S Monson and our Savior that kept me on the strait and narrow path to healing and spiritual progression.  As our prophet passed away last night I want to share with you some of the best Thomas S. Monson quotes that have helped me through my life especially this past year. 

“May we ever choose the harder right, instead of the easier wrong.”
