|Beautiful Girlhood | Mabel Hale, 1922||Guidance|
Girlhood is the opening flower of womanhood. It has charms all its own. The wonderful change from the child to the woman, the marvelous blossoming of young, healthy girlhood, will ever be God's great miracle in life's garden. Like a half-open rose is girlhood.

|Foundation Truth, Number 29 (Winter 2012) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011||Guidance|
...a man is still a man... still just an earthen vessel.... When God has finished beating the mountains small with a worm, then that worm is still a worm—a worm used of God.... "When the work of the Lord is done right, there is no room for the flesh to glory."

Oh, that men would put away their childish things! That they would seriously and humbly hunger for truth and spiritual reality! That they would... abhor the deadly simplicity of arranging things as they see best.... Most people are proving they are playing at religion.

|How to Live a Holy Life | Charles E. Orr, 1912||Guidance|

|The Instruction of Youth in the Christian Life | Charles E. Orr||Guidance|
Years ago men rushed, at the risk of their lives, to the gold fields.... We should lay hold upon all instruction that leads to the knowledge of God with that hunger of soul, with that eagerness... of which men lay hold upon that which leads them to the possession of gold.

|The Rule of a Saintly Life | Charles E. Orr, 1933||Guidance|
You are not to do right things because man teaches these things, but because God has written these right things in your heart. If you are not doing them from a righteous principle in your heart, you are not living saintly.

|The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness | Mark P. Spinks, 2010||Guidance|
To be the voice of one crying in the wilderness in this way... is to abandon all human planning and direction.... It is to forsake that peculiar fleshly confidence that comes from human reasoning and second-guessing God.

Don't you know that there are lots of times it is hard to be cheerful and kind? It is like a stormy winter day when plants don't want to grow.... But Jesus has a way for us to "sprout" on those stormy winter days.

|Wineskins for New Wine | Tyler A. Schones, 2017||Guidance|
God's kingdom isn't outward, so we can't put outward definitions on it.... It's about God moving and working. He's a living, active God. So a certain outward form might have been good for a season, but He might want to change things in the future.
