"Eternal principles will take root in us as we take time not only to read the teachings of the prophets and the scriptures but also to ponder them in the spirit of prayer. Nephi, for example, took time to sit and ponder. By so doing, he was exposed to doctrinal pearls (see 1 Nephi 11:1). Take the time to do what the Lord has directed us to do: 'Treasure these things up in your hearts, and let the solemnities of eternity rest upon your minds' (D&C 43:34). In a world that increasingly demands more of our time, it is essential that we take time to ponder in our homes, so that we may understand divine doctrine and its principles. As the Savior said, “Go ye unto your homes, and ponder upon these things . . . that ye may understand, and prepare your minds for the morrow” (3 Nephi 17:3)." - Walter F. González, "Today is the Time," General Conference, 6 October 2007


“There are books that are released to the market and quickly become best sellers. Sometimes they generate so much interest that people eagerly await their release. Such books seem to flood the market right away, and you can see people reading them everywhere. God, in His infinite wisdom, reserved the Book of Mormon for our benefit. Its purpose is not to become a best seller. Nevertheless, we can turn this sacred book into a best-read and best-applied book in our life. Let me suggest three activities that can help us turn the Book of Mormon into the best-read and best-applied book, which will empower us today to become more powerful priesthood holders, even as those in ancient times.

“First, feast upon the words of Christ….

“Second, apply in our lives all that we learn about Christ….

“Third, teach the doctrine and principles found in the sacred pages of the Book of Mormon.” - Walter F. González, “Becoming More Powerful Priesthood Holders,” Ensign, November 2009
