  "...the more class members read their scriptural reading assignments, the more they bring their scriptures to class, and the more they discuss what the gospel actually means in their lives, the more will be their inspiration, growth, and joy as they try to solve their personal concerns and challenges."

"...please encourage your students to ...read more slowly and more carefully and with more questions in mind.  Help them to ponder, to examine every word, every scriptural gem.  Teach them to hold it up to the light, and turn it, look and see what's reflected and refracted there.  For some student, on a given day with a given need, such an examination may unearth a treasure hidden in a field: a pearl of great price; a pearl beyond price."-Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

(Summer 1992 CES Satellite Broadcast p. 4)




 "Oh, if I could teach you this one principle.  A testimony is to be found in the bearing of it!  Somewhere in your quest for spiritual knowledge, there is that "leap of faith", as the philosophers call it.  It is the moment when you have gone to the edge of the light and stepped into the darkness to discover that the way is lighted ahead for just a step or two...

It is one thing to receive a witness from what you have read or what another has said; and that is a necessary beginning.  It is quite another to have the spirit confirm to you in your bosom that what you have testified of is true.  Can you not see that it will be supplied as you share it?  As you give that which you have, there is a replacement, with increase" -Elder Boyd K. Packer
