Every day, I carry two items in my pocket: my temple recommend and my copy of the “For the Strength of Youth” pamphlet. These two items are connected—not only because they are similar in size, but also because they represent the same thing: your worthiness to enter the house of the Lord.
If you—especially you youth—live according to the standards in “For the Strength of Youth,” you will always choose the right. You will be worthy to participate in baptisms and confirmations for the dead in the temple. You will be worthy to receive the priesthood, to make temple covenants, to serve a mission, and to live a meaningful life.
While “For the Strength of Youth” is geared toward youth, it shows all of us the path we must take to return to our Savior. It reminds us what we must do outside of the temple to be worthy to partake of the blessings inside the temple.
I encourage youth and adults everywhere to familiarize yourself with the guide “For the Strength of Youth” and follow its inspired standards. Your testimony will grow, and you will feel God’s approval as you live according to His commandments and His plan of happiness. http://bit.ly/1SHsg5N
