Sometimes social media can be draining on our spirits, but these uplifting tweets from the Bretheren are sure to brighten your day.
1. Elder Ballard on choices
Each of you must come to know what the Lord wants for you individually, given the choices before you.
And remember, if we are faithful and endure to the end, no righteous desire will be denied, and all blessings ultimately will be received.
— M. Russell Ballard (@BallardMRussell) July 15, 2019
2. Elder Holland on enduring till the end
I invite us to remember that perhaps the most repeated line in all of scripture is “It came to pass.” Painful days do pass. It might seem that they won’t, but they do. No regret is forever. No disappointment is fatal or final. No mistake is beyond remedy.

3. Elder Uchtodorf on everyday miracles
Allow your Heavenly Father to work His miracles. He can take a simple post on social media or a brief comment to a friend and transform it into a light that burns within someone else’s soul.
— Dieter F. Uchtdorf (@UchtdorfDF) November 7, 2019
4. Elder Bednar on weakness
Even when praying to overcome a weakness, we still have to work on that weakness. With sincere desire and effort, the Lord will help each of us become a little bit better each day.

5. Elder Cook on being an example for good
The example you set every day can have far-reaching effects. I testify that as we invite the light of the Savior into our lives, we can have greater influence than we ever thought possible.

6. Elder Christofferson on service and love
No one has a monopoly on service or love. All of us have a critical role to play.
— D. Todd Christofferson (@ChristoffDTodd) November 1, 2018
7. Elder Andersen on looking forward with faith
Look forward. Your troubles and sorrows are very real, but they will not last forever. You are a valiant child of God, and with His help, you can triumph in the battles of this fallen world. You have done it before and you can do it again.
— Neil L. Andersen (@AndersenNeilL) November 11, 2018
8. Elder Rasband on social media
As you scroll through your Twitter feed, I invite you to consider how your time here allows you to uplift and connect with others. I echo the words of President Nelson that we put ourselves at risk if we “pay more attention to feeds . . . than to the whisperings of the Spirit.”
— Ronald A. Rasband (@RonaldARasband) August 23, 2019
9. Elder Stevenson on our eternal identity
Remember your eternal identity as a child of God. Be aware that Satan will try to deceive you about who you are and wants you to compare yourself to others.

10. Elder Renlund on family history and temple work
When God directs us to do one thing, He often has many purposes in mind. Family history and temple work is not only for the dead but blesses the living as well.
When ordinances are performed on behalf of the deceased, God’s children on earth are healed.
— Dale G. Renlund (@DaleGRenlund) April 8, 2018
11. Elder Gong on becoming better
Ask yourself, “Are there things in my life I should start, stop, or continue doing?” Seemingly small actions or attitudes carried on over time can set important long-term trajectories. “Out of small things proceedeth that which is great” (D&C 64:33).
— Gerrit W. Gong (@GerritWGong) September 12, 2018
12. Elder Soares on gratitude
When we take a moment and express gratitude for what we have—no matter what difficulties we have before us—we are blessed with the perspective we need to realize that everything we have is a gift from God.
— Ulisses Soares (@Ulisses__Soares) June 9, 2018
Bonus: 3 more from the First Presidency:
President Nelson on prayer:
We love our modern mobile phones and other means by which we can have good communication with others. But we can communicate with Heavenly Father at any hour of any day or night, and there are no service fees or batteries to be charged. This is an important truth for all of us.
— Russell M. Nelson (@NelsonRussellM) November 21, 2019
Elder Oaks on loving one another:
All men and women on the earth are the offspring of God—spirit brothers and sisters. What a powerful idea! No wonder God’s Only Begotten Son commanded us to love one another.
— Dallin H. Oaks (@OaksDallinH) November 15, 2018
Elder Eyring on Christ’s love:
God the Father lives and loves you. He knows your name. Jesus is the Christ. He atoned for your sins and for all the sins of your family on conditions of faith in Him and a repentant and broken heart. He has always loved you, and He offers you His loving help in your life.
