Joy in Family History
September 2011 Visiting Teaching Message
Call to Action, September 2011 Elder M. Russell Ballard has taught, "It rests upon each one of us as mothers and fathers to do all we can to prepare our youth to be faithful, righteous men and women. It is in the home where we must teach the gospel by precept and by example." How are you helping your family to develop holy habits and righteous routines?

It is not possible to make real change all by ourselves. Our own willpower and our own good intentions are not enough. When we make mistakes or choose poorly, we must have the help of our Savior to get back on track. We partake of the sacrament week after week to show our faith in His power to change us. We confess our sins and promise to forsake them.

Allred recently said, “I conclude with an invitation to all the women in the Church to plead for a desire to be filled with the gift of charity, the pure love of Christ.
