Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God;—Doctrine and Covenants 88:119
In well-ordered homes we must keep bright the spark of testimony and build faith within each heart. —Marian R. Boyer
