On the bright side

Reading the scriptures with our three young children, we were finishing Helaman 11 when our 4-year-old son, Dallin, made an observation. "The people were just good then bad, good, then bad. . . ." We took a moment to briefly discuss what has been called the "Pride Cycle" in the Book of Mormon. Then walking to his room to be tucked into bed, he paused to comment to his mother on the condition of his room. "My room is kind of like the good/bad thing. It's clean, then messy, then clean, then messy." — Rick Jeffs, Lafayette, Indiana
