Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.
You have to have “done your homework in the gospel area as well as you have in your discipline. You can’t draw from an empty well. And so what we do in our private faith and devotion is so imperative. … And part of my preparation in the classroom is I have to make sure that there’s not anger, contention and conflict between me and my wife at home. I have to make sure that I haven’t done things that push away that spirit, so that I can have that spirit in the classroom.”
–Mark Butler, Professor in the School of Family Life, Marriage and Family Therapy
