Self Mastery


“We each grow in ability as well as understanding. We bless our children and youth as we exemplify, teach, and encourage them through this process because self-mastery is not only the root of self- respect, it is essential in inviting the Spirit to teach, confirm, and testify.”

Margaret S. Lifferth, First Counselor, Primary General Presidency
Respect and Reverence,” April 2009 General Conference


“Sometimes discipline, which means ‘to teach,’ is confused with criticism. Children—as well as people of all ages—improve behavior from love and encouragement more than from fault-finding.”

Susan W. Tanner, Young Women General President
Did I Tell You…?” April 2003 General Conference
