Put your talents into the work, ask God for wisdom, and it will be given you.” ~ Ellen G. White

White

Why not magnify His power and His love?” ~ Ellen G. White

They form attachments for man which are not broken without great suffering to them.” ~ Ellen G. White

Not a sigh is breathed, not a pain felt, not a grief pierces the soul, but the throb vibrates to the Father’s heart.” ~ Ellen G. White

One influence is working for the purification of the church, and the other for the corrupting of the people of God.” ~ Ellen G. White
