The Book of Enos is short, but it has some good things tucked into that one chapter.

When Enos prayed in repentance, he was forgiven. He says that his guilt was swept away. I just picture it as a sweet breeze that comes in and sweeps away the guilt and pain of sin, leaving behind the sweet joy he had in forgiveness.

Later in the chapter, he talks about the struggle to keep the Nephites on the right path. It took "exceeding harshness" and "exceedingly great plainness of speech" to "keep them from going down speedily to destruction."

This is something to remember when our leaders speak to us and tell us things that seem too harsh or too hard. Maybe they are speaking to us this way because it is the only way to keep us from going down speedily to destruction.
