What We Believe

Holiness describes the very nature of God and everything that is Godlike, said Sister Susan W. Tanner, former General Young Women president of the LDS Church, during a devotional on Oct. 20 at BYU-Idaho.

She spoke with her husband, John, an academic vice president at BYU.

"I like being with him as a team. I fall in love with him all over again when I hear him speak," said Susan.

John and Susan spoke about being more holy, focusing on the words "Holiness to the Lord."

John explained that the phrase, "Holiness to the Lord," is on engraved on every temple, this phrase should also be engraved on every person as well.

"Heavenly Father does not expect his children merely to build temples, but to become temples ourselves," said Susan.

John continued by saying that he loves to see temples light up the sky at night. He said when you enter Rexburg on the west side, you can see the temple for miles, especially when it is lit up.

"When I see a temple lighting up the sky, it helps me remember what we should be: Beacons of light on a hill," said John.
