Motivation from Michael Otterson, Ensign Magazine, Oct. 2009.
"Family history for me now is not just names and dates, but flesh and blood experiences to be passed on--stories to bind and strengthen families. Could the Lord also have had this in mind when he said the hearts of the children would be turned to their fathers? (Malachi 4:6)
May your hearts truly turn to those whose sacrifices have helped you become who you are. May you feel the reality of the Spirit of Elijah. May you use your natural gifts, talents and experience to help capture the stories that make your families special, and that will help bind your children and your children's children through these common experiences."
Our heritage is an important part of our lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints encourages it's member to remember our ancestors and to perform the essential saving ordinances for them in the Temples. To find out more about this visit the Church's website or feel free to email me.
