Stand Ye in Holy Places D&C 85-87

The scripture in the Doctrine and Covenants that counsels us to "stand ye in holy places and be not moved" is probably one of the most well known and often quoted verses.  We see it quoted with pictures of temples, families in their home having family home evening, or sacrament meetings.

I Will Lead You Along Doctrine & Covenants 77-80

How do I receive personal revelation?  That is the question I was asking myself a lot this week as I studied the Doctrine and Covenants.  Surely the Lord will lead me along, but am I letting Him? While Section 77 and all the things that we can learn about the book of Revelations is exciting and helpful, the bigger message I received, for me personally, is how it is possible to understand the scriptures for myself if I just ask.
