“And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation” – Helaman 5:12
“Membership in the Church is no guarantee of a strong, happy family. Many ills of our society today have their source in the breakdown of the family. If Satan can weaken or destroy the loving relationships among members of families, he can cause more misery and more unhappiness for more people than he could in any other way.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
