“My Joy is Full Yea My Heart is Brim with Joy”

Bryan Richards

Ezra Taft Benson

"My beloved coworkers, you face the happiest years of your lives. I know whereof I speak. I have been there. I have tasted the joy of missionary work. There is no work in all the world that can bring an individual greater joy and happiness. I pray your joy will be full, and like Ammon of old, you will be able to say: (quotes Alma 26:11-12.)" (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 213)

Neal A. Maxwell

"When we reach a point of consecration, our afflictions will be swallowed up in the joy of Christ. It does not mean we won't have afflictions, but they will be put in a perspective that permits us to deal with them. With our steady pursuit of joy and with each increasing measure of righteousness, we will experience one more drop of delight-one drop after another-until, in the words of a prophet, 'our hearts are brim with joy.' At last, the soul's cup finally runs over! (Brim with Joy, p. 13.)
