Seek not to declare my word, but first seek to obtain my word, and then shall your tongue be loose; then, if you desire, you shall have my Spirit and my word, yea, the power of God unto the convincing of men. Doctrine and Covenants 11:21
I was at the Missionary Training Center studying for my mission, learning how to apply these principles to those whom I could teach.
I prayed and began to walk down the hall when a painting of Jesus Christ drew my attention. The scripture posted under the painting, Doctrine and Covenants 11:21, stood out to me and I began to weep. Surely, this is the way I, as a great-grandmother from Tennessee, would teach those honest-in-heart souls.
My prayer was answered and I went back to class refreshed and ready for more knowledge. I can do this thing I had been called to do, and I was happy to do so. Sister Maretta F. Cunningham, Florida Orlando Mission
