Thomas Spencer Monson (1927-2018) was an American religious leader, author, and the sixteenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). As president of the Church, Monson was considered by adherents of the religion to be a "prophet, seer, and revelator."
“I lift up my voice in testimony as a special witness and declare that God does live. Jesus is His Son, the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is our Redeemer; He is our Mediator with the Father. He it was who died on the cross to atone for our sins. He became the firstfruits of the Resurrection. Because He died, all shall live again.” - Thomas S. Monson
