Adult Session of Stake Conference
As we progress there always seems to be some obstacle in our way that we must overcome. Satan doesn't want us to progress and tries to keep us in a veil of darkness about what the purpose of it all is.
The world likes to show us some new information or thing to confuse us about what God has previously shown us.
Being spiritually lazy places a veil over our eyes. Not doing those simple things each day to receive revelation is being spiritually lazy.
When Jesus was crucified the veil between us and God was rent so that we can have access to God if we diligently seek him.

3 Nephi 17:21-22
21 And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.
22 And when he had done this he wept again;
We should teach and bless our children one by one.
