The temple brings a spirit that can’t be felt in many other places. But it is a spirit we can invite into our own lives when we establish places like the temple – sanctuaries – that can give us space from the world and a place to focus on our Savior.
The words of Christ and His prophets are still the most powerful I’ve read. Their words are overwhelming in their truth and doctrine. Testimonies of God, of change, of healing, of progress, and of power fill the pages of scripture.

It’s time for each of us to make sure we’re living prepared each day because none of us want to be unprepared when our Savior does return. So here are some of my thoughts on how we can live prepared.
Sometimes we don’t need new messages from God, we just need to remember the ones we’ve already received. God has given His children messages and guidance throughout the history of the world. Each of these messages was significant to the people who received them, but they’re equally significant to us when we remember them.
The fact that it grows more challenging each day to stay as disciples of Christ proves that it’s more necessary than ever for us to establish ourselves in holy places – to gain a testimony of our Father and Savior and their plan for us.
In spite of my own struggles with, and questions about, the Church, I’ve found reasons to stay. It’s a choice, every single time. And it’s a choice all of us face at some point or another.
This is what I felt was the best message for the moment – to seek the better. To seek the things of a better world. To seek the better part.
I want you to pause for a minute and ask yourself – What questions do I have about my religious beliefs? Don’t skim past that. Let yourself think about it. Now what do you do with those questions?
