Link to Come, Follow Me Through the Old Testament Book: 

Gospel Library Quote about Joshua: “This book is named after Joshua because he was the principal figure in it and not because he was the author.
Old Testament prophet and leader, and the successor of Moses. He was born in Egypt before the children of Israel escaped (Num. 14:26–31). He and Caleb were among the twelve spies sent to Canaan. They alone gave a good report of the land (Num. 13:8, 16–33; 14:1–10). He died at the age of 110 (Josh. 24:29). Joshua was a great example of a devout prophet-warrior.” (Gospel Library, Guide to the Scriptures, “Joshua”)

President Uchtdorf Quote: “We are, therefore, not ignorant of the challenges of the world, nor are we unaware of the difficulties of our times. But this does not mean that we should burden ourselves or others with constant fear. Rather than dwelling on the immensity of our challenges, would it not be better to focus on the infinite greatness, goodness, and absolute power of our God, trusting Him and preparing with a joyful heart for the return of Jesus the Christ? As His covenant people, we need not be paralyzed by fear because bad things might happen. Instead, we can move forward with faith, courage, determination, and trust in God as we approach the challenges and opportunities ahead” [2017–A:104, Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear]

Sister Michelle Craig Quote: “Jesus Christ sees people deeply. He sees individuals, their needs, and who they can become. Where others saw fishermen, sinners, or publicans, Jesus saw disciples; where others saw a man possessed by devils, Jesus looked past the outward distress, acknowledged the man, and healed him.” (2020–O:15, Michelle D. Craig, Eyes to See)

Elder Marlin K. Jensen Quote:  “Remembering enables us to see God’s hand in our past, just as prophecy and faith assure us of God’s hand in our future” (“Remember and Perish Not,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2007, 38).
