All little children are alive in Christ, and also all they that are without the law. For the power of redemption cometh on all them that have no law; wherefore, he that is not condemned, or he that is under no condemnation, cannot repent; and unto such baptism availeth nothing.—Moroni 8:22
Children are open to gospel truths more than at any other time, and protected childhood is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to teach and strengthen children to choose the right.—Margaret S. Lifferth
This Day in LDS History

1977: The First Presidency announces that the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will direct ecclesiastical matters and that the Presiding Bishopric will oversee temporal programs of the Church.
