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.
- President Marion G. Romney

Living Scripture- Honorably Hold a Name and Standing by Elder David A. Bednar

I love Elder Bednar. I love the plainness with which he speaks. I love the way he invites the hearer to learn by the Spirit, with him. Hearing Him talk in Conference reminds me of many devotional Tuesdays (at Ricks College) spent learning with him. Even then he invited the Spirit to accompany us as we opened our scriptures and learned together. I love the way he teaches that the learning never stops.

In Conference Elder Bednar spoke about Temples. Honorably Hold a Name and Standing As you read think about your answers to the following questions.
