Filling Our Homes With Light and Truth

“Satan knows that in order for us and our families to withstand the pressures of the world, we must be filled with light and gospel truth. So he does everything in his power to dilute, distort, and destroy the truth of the gospel and to keep us separated from that truth.

Many of us have been baptized and have received the gift of the Holy Ghost, whose role it is to reveal and teach the truth of all things. With the responsibility to seek truth, to live the truth as we know, and to share and defend the truth.

One place where we seek best to be filled with light and truth is in our own homes. Families are the Lord’s workshop on earth to help us learn and live the gospel. We come into our families with a sacred duty to help strengthen each other spiritually.

Strong eternal families and Spirit-filled homes do not just happen. They take great effort, they take time, and they take every member of the family doing his or her part. Every home is different, but every home where just one individual seeks for truth can make a difference.”

~ Sister Cheryl A. Esplin, 2nd Counselor in the Primary General Presidency
