December 2010 Visiting Teaching MessageDecember Call to Action President Boyd K. Packer taught: “Family history work has the power to do something for the dead. It has an equal power to do something to the living.

- By Julie B. Beck Relief Society general president Liahona and Ensign, Sept. 2010 As parents, leaders, and Church members, we are preparing this generation for the blessings of Abraham, for the temple. We have the responsibility to be very clear on key points of doctrine found in the proclamation on the family. Motherhood and fatherhood are eternal roles and responsibilities. Each of us carries the responsibility for either the male or the female half of the plan.
