A THOUGHT FROM THE SCRIPTURES

But ye will teach them [your childrenT to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another. - Mosiah 4:15

"Priesthood keys of leadership and other keys of presidency are extremely vital; but for the most part, even they are temporary in nature," said Elder Durrel A.

"Many in the world are alarmed, and with some justification, at the plight and deteriorating condition of families. The most powerful thrust toward a resolution of this significant problem would be an honorable father, full of integrity and fidelity, giving righteous leadership to his family. That joyful work and calling is to do whatever is necessary to chart a course for you and your family to unitedly return and live with Heavenly Father. . . ."
