For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. - Rom. 15:4
"Father, one of your greatest resources will be the scriptures," Elder Durrel A. Woolsey, then of the Second Quorum of the Seventy, said during the priesthood session of the October 1990 general conference. "You would not consider making a large investment in a rather complicated and technical piece of equipment, then begin its operation, without an involved study of the handbook of instruction. Further, you would likely reference that handbook often.
"The handbook of instructions for your somewhat complicated, very sizable investment called family is certainly the original handbook of instruction - that being our beloved scriptures. They are complete with instructions and examples. Often, you will find the answer before the question is asked. Daily research is required. It is also vital to maintain open communication lines with the Fountainhead of all wisdom and truth through your daily family and personal prayers."
