A gospel-centered home, established by righteous parents, is the best place for the rising generation to start developing their testimonies.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, let us examine the life of three faithful women who touched the lives of many, including those from generations yet to come. They come from different places and have different backgrounds, but they all exercised faith in the Lord and partnered with Him in raising valiant souls entrusted to them by God.
When we teach an eternal truth to our children and don't explain it in the context of a firm testimony of the Savior, we miss the power of the example of the greatest teacher the world has ever known.
We counsel parents and children to give highest priority to family prayer, family home evening, gospel study and instruction, and wholesome family activities. However worthy and appropriate other demands or activities may be, they must not be permitted to displace the divinely-appointed duties that only parents and families can adequately perform.
Our focus in all that we do as members of the Church is on the enabling power that comes through our Savior, Jesus Christ. Coming unto Christ and participating in the ordinances of the gospel, and particularly temple ordinances are inseparably connected.
'In the coming years, as we align with our declaration 'Come Unto Christ: I Will Go, I Will Serve', we will one day see tens of thousands of Filipinos serving missions and we will remember back on the 4600 Missionary Miracle and fondly declare...it was a good start.'
Our focus in what we do as members of the Church is on the empowering, enabling power that comes through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is walking with you. He loves you and he provide you with helpers along the way in the form of your parents, your leaders, and your friends. We do not walk this path alone.
