Selected Devotionals at BYU-Idaho

Every Tuesday afternoon, students and employees assemble in the BYU-Idaho Center for devotional. In these worship services, students and employees come together to hear words of counsel and inspiration from a variety of specially selected speakers.

We Lived After the Manner of Happiness

Elder Kim B. Clark and Sister Sue Clark President of BYU-Idaho

From these experiences, and from many others, we have learned that the pattern of holiness the Lord has given us helps us overcome the effects of pain and suffering. Here are the lessons:


The Church: Scaffolding for Our Lives

Elder L. Tom Perry
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Please remember that when you graduate and leave this great institution you are marked for life as both a graduate of BYU-Idaho and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In effect, you leave here as representatives of Jesus Christ and His Church.


Faith is a Decision

Dale Sturm
Chair, BYU-Idaho Department of Religious Education

Faith is a decision. It is a choice to act on what we have been taught and we know to be right even when we don’t feel like it


It’s the Principle of the Thing

Brother Don H. Staheli
Secretary to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

This life is about learning principles. Principles are the fundamental truths that make up our system of belief and behavior. They do not change with the winds of social convention or personal style.


Vision in the Wilderness

Elder Lance B. Wickman
Emeritus Member, First Quorum of the Seventy

I have learned this one lesson above all others: there is no easy way up the cliff! Remember always this lesson of life—in opposition there is opportunity! Seize it!
