🔹 The Holy Ghost from A to Z is a religious nonfiction book written by Liz Kazandzhy and published in June 2022

🔹 Quote from H - Softens Your *Heart*

Another time it’s important to seek out greater humility is when you come across gospel doctrines, principles, or practices that are confusing or even distressing to you. These topics can become a major stumbling block to your faith if you choose to harden your heart because of them. Instead, what you ought to do is actively strive to soften your heart—from the very moment you begin to feel doubts creeping in. Then you’ll be able to continue to seek understanding with the protective influence of the Spirit. You will probably not find all the answers you seek—at least in this lifetime—but the Holy Ghost can lead you to greater understanding and also help you “doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.” And you, like Nephi, will be able to say, “I do not know the meaning of all things . . . [but] I know that [God] loveth his children.”

When you feel distressed about a part of the gospel, draw nearer to God instead of distancing yourself from Him

The Spirit will (1) help you discern the truth, and (2) give you peace and comfort as you wrestle with your doubts

🔹 Takeaway

Notice the next time you feel your heart hardening, and decide today what you will do to soften your heart and seek the Holy Ghost when that happens
