Come, Follow Me


After the Nephites separated from the Lamanites, they built a temple and lived the commandments of the Lord. They preached and learned the gospel of Jesus Christ together, and 2 Nephi 5:27 states it simply: “We lived after the manner of happiness.”

The happiest times in my life have been when I was working the hardest to keep the commandments of God. When I take the time to pray fervently, attend the temple regularly, focus on my covenants, and strive to be a better disciple of Jesus Christ, I feel so happy.

Wilford Woodruff taught this principle in his journal: “We should trust all our affairs in the hands of God, we should do right & follow the counsel of those that are set over us & the blessing of God will attend us & we shall be happy.”

May we all live after the manner of happiness and enjoy God’s promised blessings to those who keep His commandments and live in His way.
