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.

Faith, Hope, and Charity

Kim B. Clark
President of BYU-Idaho

"In every trial in our lives, the way forward is always faith and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and His pure and perfect love. If we choose Christ and the way of faith, hope, and charity, the Lord will bless us with the spiritual gifts and guidance we need to overcome our trials and become more and more like Him."

Come Unto Christ Through The Book of Mormon

Elder Gary Coleman
Emeritus Member, First Quorum of the Seventy

"I like to know that I am okay before the Lord. I like to know exactly what my circumstance is in this life as I follow Jesus, believe in God, and have the influence of the Holy Ghost in my life."

Tolerance—Knowing and Living

Elder Allan F. Packer
First Quorum of the Seventy

"In God’s plan for salvation, we are the ones being molded, shaped and polished to become like Him. It is something each of us have to do individually. 'For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.'"

Principles, Patterns and Promises

Elder Paul E. Koelliker
First Quorum of the Seventy

"As we embrace 'change,' we discover it to be a principle of growth rather than a trial.  I've come to call 'change' the principle of 'continuous learning.'"

I Will Prepare

President Clair O. Thueson
President, Rexburg Idaho Temple

"Those simple, plain, unattractive rocks had a beauty that I would not have thought possible. This same process happens to us as we experience the polishing that God sees fit as a preparation for our growth and development."
