Message from the First Presidency

(Found on pages 2-3 of the For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet.)

Our beloved young men and women, we have great confidence in you.  You are choice spirits who have come forth in this day when responsibilities and opportunities, as well as the temptations,  are the greatest.
You are at the beginning of your journey through mortal life.  Your Heavenly Father wants your life to be joyful and to lead you back into His presence. The decisions you make now will determine much of what will
follow during your life and throughout eternity.  Because the Lord loves you, He has given you commandments and the words of prophets to guide you on your journey. Some of the most important guidelines for your life are found in this pamphlet.

We testify that these principles are true.  We promise that as you keep these standards and live by the
truths in the scriptures, You will be able to do your life's work with greater wisdom and skill and bear trials with greater courage. You will have the help of the Holy Ghost. You will feel good about yourself and will be a positive influence in the lives of others. You will be worthy to go to the temple to receive holy ordinances.
These blessings and many more can be yours.

We pray for each of you.  May you keep your minds and bodies clean from the sins of the world so you can do the great work that lies before you.  We pray that you will be worthy to carry on the responsibilities of building the kingdom of God and preparing the world for the Second Coming of the Savior.
