What makes a dad a real dad? It’s not just making corny jokes, telling embarrassing stories, or even sharing the same DNA. It’s being an example. It’s teaching your children who they are and whose they are.
My task of documenting President Nelson’s trip to eight cities on three continents in 11 days was serendipitous—it was filled with the repeated discovery of unexpected treasure. Watching President Nelson through the Church News window gives me the desire to minister in the moment, with the deliberateness of feeling at home with all of God’s children.
Whatever our age, our situation, or our need, I hope that each of us can experience ministering and being ministered to as the Savior would. Here are three ideas to help us know how.
Ann M. Dibb, daughter of President Thomas S. Monson, shares memories of her father.

In this increasingly divided world in which we live, differences will persist. But as followers of Jesus Christ, we need to love, reserve judgment, and forgive.
If we all do the “love one another” thing a little better, we’ll all help each other remember that in God’s Church and in His everlasting love, there is always a place for you.
When God let my life crumble, it wasn’t because He didn’t love me. He let my life crumble because He wanted me back. He wanted to teach me. He wanted to change me.
In the words of one faith leader, “There is no need to want someone else’s blessing. We each have our own.”
