This is a great article. Thank You. It seems that for too many of us in the LDS community that we become so busy just trying to keep up with all the demands of life making sure that we measure up to what we perceive our light has to be, because we have been taught that we are of the Holy Church of God, yet we seek the praise of others unable to see the light that is available to us. D&C 93:1-2 states, "Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall SEE MY FACE and know that I am; 2. And that I am the true LIGHT that lighteth every man that cometh into the world;". Surely this means that we are expected to seek His face in our lifetime and actually see it, as did the brother of Jared and others in the examples printed in the Book of Mormon and not confine ourselves by just accepting a lesser light.
Thank you for giving us such a beautiful analogy of the Light of Christ that shines in each of us. It is an important reminder of how universally the love of God is shared. It is inconvenient on each of us to look for and recognize that light in others. When we do so we open the way for both enlightenment and truth in so many ways.
Elder Hugh B. Brown urged us: “Let not our knowledge that we have the truth stifle our search for more truth.”  Additionally, President David O. McKay penned a couplet about the need for us to seek for truth wherever we can find it:
“Truth is truth where ere ‘tis found.
Whether on Christian or on heathen ground.” 
Perfect reminder for so many who forget truth abounds outside of their own faith community...we all have much to learn from other's light room as described in this article.
Excellent! As an 18-year-old convert to the LDS Church 44 years ago, I appreciate all who continue to seek and discern "further light and knowledge" from "the best books" and sources God has given His children throughout this world's history. Thank you!
Beautifully written. Truly there is much yet to be revealed. And if some--or much- is revealed from sources outside of my tiny LDS circle, my desire to praise a God who has infinite love for all of creation grows even more. Thank you.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful...And the three rooms?.....Telestial, Terestrial, and Celestial...Great teaching tool for kids, teens and adults. Thank you!
Thank you Sister Pratt for your excellent inputs. That is a great article.
Thank you for this article. I related to your story of the Muslim truck driver. We lived in Kuwait for five years and I had the same experience as I watched an early morning worker, all alone put his prayer rug down and pray because of his inner light.
