” For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them, and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children.” – 2 Nephi 4:15
“Brothers and sisters, because I know from my own experiences, and those of my husband, I must testify of the blessings of daily scripture study and prayer and weekly family home evening. These are the very practices that help take away stress, give direction to our lives, and add protection to our homes.” – Linda S. Reeves
