“Now the Lord had shown the intelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the noble and great ones.” —Abraham 3:22
“One day, while my kids were sleeping, I decided to look through my old journals. One statement in particular touched me: “I will strive to excel in my academic and spiritual learning so I can be an intelligent and noble mom to my kids.” That enlightenment was what I needed the most! I felt the Spirit testify to me that I had made the right choice for my family. I realized that my education and work experience were not just for my benefit but for my children’s.” —Lilian Pagaduan-Villamor, August 2018 Ensign
