“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1

General Conference, ‘Closing Remarks’, October 2019 “We know the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will bring hope and joy to people who will hear and heed His doctrine. We also know that each home can become a true sanctuary of faith, where peace, love, and the Spirit of the Lord may dwell.

Temple Worship; or is that Idol Worship? 

“A Temple-Motivated People,” Liahona, Oct 2010, 36–39; “Keep a picture of a temple in your home that your children may see it. Teach them about the purposes of the house of the Lord.”
