Contention Will Depart

“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, Apr. 1980, 90; or Ensign, May 1980, 67).

Greater Spirituality

More than at any time in our history, brothers and sisters, we have need for greater spirituality.
The way to develop greater spirituality is to feast on the words of Christ as revealed in the scriptures.  

Ezra Taft Benson, "Counsel to the Saints" April 1984
