richard-g-scott-large“Pondering a passage of scripture can be a key to unlock the revelation and the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Ghost.  Scriptures can calm an agitated soul, giving peace, hope, and restoration of confidence in one’s ability to overcome the challenges of life.  They have potent power to heal emotional challenges when there is faith in the Savior.  They can accelerate physical healing.”

trumanmadsen“(Joseph F. Smith) taught that the scriptures would bring new insights to us, even those with which we are presently familiar.  You know the experience.  You may have marked a passage in the book, and then a year or tow or longer later, you open your scriptures to that place, and there’s that passage.  You don’t remember marking it, and this time when you read it, it has a deeper meaning.  What we bring to the scriptures in large part determines how much we take from them.”
– Truman G. Madsen



spencerwkimball“No father, no son, no mother, no daughter should get so busy that he or she does not have time to study the scriptures and the words of the modern prophets. None of us should get so busy that we crowd out contemplation and praying. None of us should become so busy in our formal Church assignments that there is no room left for quiet Christian service to our neighbors.”
– Spencer W. Kimball

spencerwkimball“I find that when I get casual in my relationships with divinity and when it seems that no divine ear is listening and no divine voice is speaking, that I am far, far away. If I immerse myself in the scriptures the distance narrows and the spirituality returns. I find myself loving more intensely those whom I must love with all my heart and mind and strength, and loving them more, I find it easier to abide their counsel.”
– Spencer W. Kimball



boyd-k-packer-large“True doctrine, understood, changes attitude and behavior. The study of doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. Preoccupation with unworthy behavior can lead to unworthy behavior. That is why we stress so forcefully the study of the doctrines of the gospel.”
– Boyd K. Packer

Feast upon the words of Christ. Learn the doctrine. Master the principles that are found therein. There are few other efforts that will bring greater dividends to your calling. There are few other ways to gain greater inspiration as you serve.”
