The Purpose of Mortality

If he shall be diligent in keeping my commandments he shall be blessed unto eternal life. 
Doctrine and Covenants 18:8

The Lord did not send you here to fail. He did not give you life to waste it He bestowed upon you the gift of mortality that you might gain experience -- positive, wonderful, purposeful experience -- that will lead to life eternal [living with Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and our families forever].  (Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand a Little Taller, 2001
