And now, their preservation was astonishing to our whole army, yea, that they should be spared while there was a thousand of our brethren who were slain. And we do justly ascribe it to the miraculous power of God, because of their exceeding faith in that which they had been taught to believe—that there was a just God, and whosoever did not doubt, that they should be preserved by his marvelous power. —Alma 57:26
As you teach, lead, and love children, you can receive personal revelation that will aid you in creating and arming valiant, sin-resistant children. —Joy D. Jones
