“But my disciples shall stand in holy places, and shall not be moved”
Doctrine and Covenants 45:32
When we stand in holy places, the Lord blesses us with guidance, peace and happiness. Likewise, when we visit uplifting websites, we may feel the Spirit more in our life.

Personal Notes: While there’s a lot of bad websites and blogs, there’s also a lot of good websites and blogs. On the internet we have more control over our media consumption than ever before. We can choose what we watch, listen to or read at almost any moment. We can also share our testimony with more people than ever before. What a blessing! I encourage you to take a look at these LDS blogs and LDS websites- some of them are very useful.
