Faith like a seed

If we really want to believe, and listen to the word of God, it is planted in our hearts like a seed and starts to grow. Alma 32:26–28

The seed grows

Alma said that as we learn more about the gospel, this seed keeps growing. We know that it is good, and our faith grows stronger. Alma 32:30

Goood seeds bring good fruit
