"The good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that the desires of our hearts can be transformed."
"God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were."
"If you’re not hearing the music of the gospel in your home, please remember these two words: keep practicing."
"Dissonance in the home is like darkness in a room. … We must displace the darkness by introducing light."
"There will always be a spiritual light that beckons to us, giving us the hope of rescue and relief."
"The gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to change. “Repent” is its most frequent message, and repenting means giving up all of our practices—personal, family, ethnic, and national—that are contrary to the commandments of God. The purpose of the gospel is to transform common creatures into celestial citizens, and that requires change."
"And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?"
""As you hear or read the words of the ancient and modern prophets, refrain from thinking about how the words apply to someone else and ask the simple question: “Lord, is it I?” We must approach our Eternal Father with broken hearts and teachable minds. We must be willing to learn and to change. And, oh, how much we gain by committing to live the life our Heavenly Father intends for us.""
"The Lord has a plan for us in this life. He knows us. He knows what is best for us. Just because things are going well does not mean that we should not from time to time consider whether there might be something better. If we continue to live as we are living, will the promised blessings be fulfilled?"
