"The family should kneel together daily in family prayer. Alma 58:10 tells us: 'Therefore we did pour out our souls in prayer to God, that he would strengthen us and deliver us out of the hands of our enemies, yea, and also give us strength that we might retain our cities, and our lands, and our possessions, for the support of our people.' Our family has always needed to be strengthened-and still does-and kneeling in prayer daily certainly helps. Children need to be constantly taught how they should act when they mature and have their own families." - LeGrand R. Curtis, "Happiness Is Homemade," Ensign, November 1990, p. 13

"Each of us possesses an inner light, the light of Christ (see Moro. 7:16-19). We can affect the brightness of that light by our thoughts and actions. There is a strong suggestion in Matthew 5:16 [Matt. 5:16] that we, by controlling our thoughts and actions, can choose how we affect the lives of those around us." - LeGrand R. Curtis, "Perfection: A Daily Process," Ensign, July 1995, p. 30

"People will be happy to about the same degree that they are actively involved in trying to help others. This truth is tied to the Savior's teaching that 'inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me' (Matt. 25:40)." - LeGrand R. Curtis, "Perfection: A Daily Process," Ensign, July 1995, p. 33

"It is strange that in our praying we seldom ask for a change of character but always a change in circumstances. Some of the challenges we face may, in our Father's eternal perspective, be exactly what we need at this time in our lives. Perhaps we would be wise to pray for faith and strength to endure and grow in character and spirit." - LeGrand R. Curtis, "Perfection: A Daily Process," Ensign, July 1995, 33

In the ideal home, each child would be given every possible opportunity to develop his own personality without too much domination. Discipline is organized love, and children develop properly in an atmosphere of love, with adequate guidelines to shape their lives and their habits. More children are punished for mimicking their parents than ever for disobeying them. We should be what we want to see. - LeGrand R. Curtis, "Happiness is Homemade," Ensign (CR) November 1990
