I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from The Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity - the pure love of Christ - will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness.

Living Scripture - The Ministry of Angels

This weeks conference talk is from Elder Jeffrey R. Holland. It is "The Ministry of Angels". In this talk Elder Holland reminds us that the Lord knows sometimes we have hard, lonely days and explains that the Lord sends angels to comfort us. He tells some of the history of angels, and reminds us that often times angels are the people that walk among us, that live in our neighborhoods.

Elder Holland closes his talk with this urging: "...May we all try to be a little more angelic ourselves - with a kind word, a strong arm, a declaration of faith and the 'covenant wherewith [we] have covenanted.'"

After you had read the talk, ponder it and share any thoughts that struck you. Have you had any experience with angels in your life? What can we do to be angles to someone else?
