 +  * Think of Israel'​s tribes as a symbolism of the family, and the blessings that come with it
 +  * Changes to ordinances can be a stumbling block (see 3 Nephi, confusion re no more animal sacrifice)
 +  * Using the priesthood is like being an envelope - you deliver the message, and you may not know what it is
 +  * I think that judgments against nations could be judgments against their lifestyle, or the crimes they have committed (keep it in perspective of a nation representing a person and their way of life or actions)
 +  * Living the gospel is not about willpower, it is about choice.
 +  * The Holy Ghost removes the effects of sin.
 +  * When you pray about how to help others, answers come quickly.

 +  * If you keep the commandments,​ you will prosper in the land -- we will prosper where we are now.
 +  * The prodigal son's father fulfilled his son's request and gave him his inheritance.
 +  * The work will go further, independently of all power. (Pres. Monson)
 +  * Heavenly Father is mindful of each of us, and our individual needs.

 +  * The gospel is a powerful influence in the lives of people.
 +  * That something is good is not reason enough to devote time and resources. (Pres. Uchtdorf)
 +  * Our lives need regular pruning to bring forth good fruit.
 +  * Diligently study the scriptures.
 +  * Sermons without action are like fire without heat.

 +  * Compulsion builds resentment and causes distrust.
 +  * "Wise parents prepare their children to get along without them."
 +  * Never say '​no'​ without a '​go'​. ​ Provide alternate paths.

 +  * How many are not here (at church) because they are discouraged or feel like they don't belong? ​ Find someone and tell them they can be happy. ​ Carry a message of love, acceptance, and belonging. ​ Find someone who is lonely, scared, hurt, who doesn'​t feel like they belong, and help them.

 +  * I can't coast off the accomplishments of the past.
 +  * Consider your membership in the family as a calling.
 +  * The Book of Mormon (and the scriptures) document miracles that we can all reference
 +  * "We cannot start out in a wrong direction without first overruling a warning."​
