I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.
Doctrine and Covenants 8:2
"Nothing is more important to the relationship between family members than open, honest communication," said Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve in April 1999 general conference.
"This is particularly true for parents trying to teach gospel principles and standards to their children. The ability to counsel with our youth and perhaps more importantly, to really listen to their concerns is the foundation upon which successful relationships are built. Often what we see in the eyes and what we feel in the heart will communicate far more than what we hear or say."
