Practice

“Standing in holy places helps us to become holy, but that is an acquired virtue that takes practice. Practice listening to the Spirit and being obedient. Practice being morally pure. Practice being reverent about sacred things. The Lord has told us to come unto Him and He can make us holy. Let Him envelop you in love and forgiveness and peace. Regardless of what is going on around you, you can practice creating an environment of your own, filled with the Spirit of the Lord.”

Sharon G. Larsen, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Fear Not: For They That Be with Us Are More,” October 2001 General Conference

“Qualities of spirituality do not come without effort. Like any other talent with which we are blessed, they must be constantly practiced. A famous pianist once said, ‘If I fail to practice for one day, I can tell the difference in my playing. If I fail to practice for two days, my family can tell the difference. If I fail for three days, the whole world can tell the difference.’ This same principle applies to us in our quest for exaltation.”

Barbara W. Winder, Relief Society General President
Becoming a Prepared People”, October 1987 General Conference
