    I would like to share a beautiful quote from Patricia T. Holland’s book, A Quiet Heart, “I believe that what we learn from Moses and Joseph is that meekness also means strength–strength to be yourself, your best self, and to resist those people, principles, and places that work to abuse you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I promise you that it is not God’s will for you to be used and abused. Meekness means you must follow him where he will lead you, but he will always lead you away from, not toward, those who fail to treat you with dignity and respect…If you find yourself in such relationships I encourage you to meekly–which means with peaceful strength–insist that a change in behavior is required if the relationship is to continue.”
    Patricia helps a woman find a quiet heart within herself in her book. Within one’s quiet heart with be a sanctuary, with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ’s presence, to truly have peace and rest. [Patricia T. Holland is the wife of Elder Jeffrey R. Holland.]
