We Do Not Seek, Nor Do We Decline

“I recall my initial reaction when I received this sacred call from the Lord to serve as the newest member of the First Presidency of this Church,I felt joyfully overwhelmed. Since then I have learned new dimensions of the words humility, gratitude, and faith. . . . In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we do not seek, nor do we decline, callings that come from God through inspired priesthood channels. I pray that God will grant me strength and an understanding heart to magnify this sacred calling according to His will and purpose.”
