“And I will bless them through thy name; for as many as receive this Gospel shall be called after thy name, and shall be accounted thy seed, and shall rise up and bless thee, as their father.” —Abraham 2:10
“We can learn more about Heavenly Father and His plan for us when we receive a patriarchal blessing. Sometimes when I want to know more about what Heavenly Father wants me to do in my life, I read my patriarchal blessing and it helps me. The Church counsels members to receive their patriarchal blessing when it’s right for them. You will know by the Spirit when the time is appropriate.” —Don R. Clarke
