Believe in Love

During Christmas, we should stop, take time, and remember not only our family on this side of the veil but also our ancestors who made it possible for us to be alive today! 

“I doubt that many of those who set foot on that journey really understood what they were getting into or that they looked forward to the daily effort it eventually required. But they did know it was going to be hard and that there was a possibility they or someone they loved would not finish the journey. And yet they came. By the tens of thousands, they came. And we—the Church, the nation, and even the world—are richer because they came.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“Honor the sacrifices of our ancestors that brought us here today, by giving them the gift of Family History and Temple work!”

– President Hicken

We stand today as beneficiaries of their priceless heritage to us, a heritage based on the truth that righteousness brings forth the blessings of God.”

Have the same pioneering spirit and perseverance as Pioneers of old:

“With the complex issues facing our families and our friends, our citizens, our state, our neighbors, our nation, the world, may we remember pioneers of an earlier day who persevered against injustice, misunderstanding, some intolerance, occasional bigotry, occasional racism, against differences of custom and traditions and faith, who labored against all of that to carve out for us, their descendants, the wonderful day and the marvelous miraculous time in which we live. We owe the same pioneering, persevering legacy to our children and our children’s children.”
-Jeffrey R. Holland
