The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that all truth is learned by the Spirit. Explore this important connection between discipleship and scholarship through quotes from Church leaders about approaching teaching and learning with an eye of faith.
The most important lessons of life are caught --not taught.
Elder Bednar explains that the best teachers in his life never gave him answers to his questions; rather, they guided him in the process of finding his own answers. As learners seek out and find their own answers by faith, they will retain them for a lifetime.
"It is never about me and it is never about you . . . . We must be careful to remember in our service that we are conduits and channels--not the light."
Elder David A. Bednar shares the example of fiber-optic cables to illustrate how effective teachers are conduits of the Spirit when teaching. To draw attention to self when teaching is a form of priestcraft that inhibits the Holy Ghost.
