"Our spiritual strength comes from consistently engaging in righteous actions that draw us closer to God."
"Here are five practices that can change our lives:
1. Hold personal and family scripture study.
2. Hold personal and family prayer.
3. Hold family home evening.
4. Pay an honest tithe.
5. Serve others by fulfilling Church callings."
Elder James B. Martino (of the Seventy)
I love a straight forward list of basic things that bring me closer to God and bring happiness in my home.
It reminds me where to focus my efforts and that is always much appreciated.
It's so true that when I put first things first, everything else in my life feels so much better.
These things are the essentials.
