Daily Reminder on Music and Dancing: #9 out of 21

Today I, ____________________, will carefully choose the music I listen to.

“Learn and sing the hymns. Hymns can lift your spirit, move you to righteous action, and help you withstand the temptations of the adversary.” – For the Strength of Youth

Today and until August 2, I, ____________________, will learn and sing the hymns.

Choose a Favorite Hymn

“[The] constant guidance and inspiration [of Christ] are available to you when you keep your mind filled to overflowing with the good, the beautiful, the inspiring. And this is one way to do it. Choose a favorite hymn or song…, one with words that are uplifting and music that is reverent, one that makes you feel something akin to inspiration. There are many beautiful songs to choose from. Seek the guidance of the Spirit in making your selection. Go over the song in your mind carefully. Memorize it. Even though you have had no musical training, you can think through a simple song. Now use this as the course for your thoughts to follow. Make it your emergency channel.

“Whenever you find shady actors slipping from the sidelines of your thinking onto the stage of your mind, put on this CD, as it were. It will change your whole mood.” – Worthy Music, Worthy Thoughts by Boyd K. Packer
