Step It Up If you overhear your friends saying something bad about someone else behind their back, refrain from joining in the gossip. Instead say something nice about the person who they are talking about, and try to change the subject.
Keep It Simple
“We must remember that much spiritual growth does not occur suddenly but rather through time and experience. The encouraging message of the gospel is that God does not often require us to perform sensational or extraordinary deeds but rather to try to do better today than we did yesterday. He is mindful of our desires, our determination, and our direction as well as of our deeds.”
–Brent L. Top, “A Balanced Life”, Ensign Apr. 2005, 26
