Regroup, reset,
That peace be set
Before your eyes

  1. For Peace at Home by Elder Richard G. Scott | Conference Talks!

  2. Many voices from the world in which we live tell us we should live at a frantic pace. There is always more to do and more to accomplish. Yet deep inside each of us is a need to have a place of refuge where peace and serenity prevail, a place where we can reset, regroup, and reenergize to prepare for future pressures.”

Come clean, have that burden lifted

Remember your sin no more
Do not be one who has drifted
And forgotten your remorse
The atonement is a protection
A fortifying wall
From the past’s sin filled re-inspection
And the temptation to fall

‘Personal strength through the Atonement of Jesus Christ’

The rising generation
Has much within reach
For gospel education
It’s an endless feast
The Word brings a peace
That comes to our homes
Where love can increase
And build up our hopes

Just thinking about all I have put on my phone since December.  I have the gospel at my fingertips!

Righteous character
Is more valuable than health
Knowledge,  endeavor,
Popularity, or wealth
Its transforming power
Yields consistent results
As good choices empower
Humility is built
“Righteous character is more valuable than any material object you own, any knowledge you have gained through study, or any goals you have attained no matter how well lauded by mankind. In the next life your righteous character will be evaluated to assess how well you used the privilege of mortality.”

Scriptures are like packets of light
That reach inside us to speak
Inspiring us, from Father on high,
As oft as we humbly seek
A memorized scripture becomes a friend
That we can call upon any time
Adding new meaning again and again
Illuminating thoughts in our mind
Therein lies power even to heal us
Of the many emotions that harm
 Lest from worry we fall to pieces 
The scriptures offer insights that calm
Pondering a passage can be a key
To unlock revelation and hope
Restoring confidence so quick to flee
To really see, feel, and know

Pondering The Power of Scripture
Elder Richard G. Scott
Nov Ensign 2011, 6

The scriptures take on new meaning
As we read them again and again
We discover truths while reading
For they speak to us as a friend

Let us mark them and treasure
Each precious thing that we learn
Let us ponder and then measure
Our eternal hopes for which we yearn

The Power of Scripture
Elder Richard G. Scott
Ensign, November 2011
