Elder Jeffrey R. Holland and Patricia Holland were the keynotes for Family Discovery Day. As part of their virtual presentation, the Hollands take us to St. George, Utah, where they share stories of their childhood, the significance of family, and what it means to be united as God’s children.
One of the poignant stops on the tour occurs when Elder Holland takes everyone to the local cemetery where much of his family is buried, including his younger brother, who died as an infant.”
“He died at 3 months,” a tearful Elder Holland shares. “One of the great, great, great, blessings of the gospel is I have every confidence, every assurance, couldn’t be more sure of anything in the world than that I will know him again. I’m confident that we’ll all have get acquainted time with those we’ve lost.”
The Hollands also have a tender and touching conversation with their grown children about spiritual milestones, enjoy ice cream with their grandchildren, and bear testimony of the importance of connecting with our roots.
