15:52 – When is conflict justified? If you want the Lord’s help you need the right emotion or attitude, the right motive or reason, and to not be guilty of retaliation or the second offense. When the Lord is with you he will help you in your personal conflicts.

1:15:27 – Alma 50.30-31 Morianton’s maid servant fled to the camp of Moroni.
1:19:52 – It is easier and better to prepare and prevent than to repair and repent.
