We can make each of our homes a house of faith by believing in the goodness of God and believing that by living gospel principles we can live in spiritual peace and security despite any earthly trials.
While many of our beliefs are the same, some are different. And understanding those differences can provide important perspective that will fortify our faith and provide direction in our lives.
There are treasures of truth that will lead anyone who reads it with sincerity towards our Savior.
Our ministry is to help others have opportunities to feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost, thus allowing them to act for themselves and walk along the covenant path.
We will have the knowledge and power of God to help us take the blessings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people and to prepare the world for the Second Coming of the Lord.
President Russell M. Nelson explained that “the adversary is increasing his attacks on faith and upon us and our families at an exponential rate. To survive spiritually, we need counterstrategies and proactive plans.”
When we minister, we are representing Jesus Christ and acting as His agents to watch over, lift, and strengthen those around us.
To achieve meaningful and successful ministering, leaders should conduct inspired ministering interviews with humility, love, and faith in the Lord.
I recall when I first attended a fast and testimony meeting at church. I remember hearing quite similar testimonies from full time missionaries.
Elder Peter F. Meurs of the Seventy
The purpose of this life is 'to prepare to meet God.'
One of the most beautiful doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that families can be together forever. Combining this with the promises of Elijah “of turning the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers”1 makes the temple or the House of the Lord so important and precious to all Latter-day Saints.
