What Matters Most..

In the routine of life, we often take our families—our parents and children and siblings—for granted. But in times of danger and need and change, there is no question that what we care about most is our families

Indeed, nothing is more critically connected to happiness—both our own and that of our children—than how well we love and support one another within the family.

As your leaders, we call upon members of the Church everywhere to put family first and to identify specific ways to strengthen their individual families.

We should not need a hurricane or other crisis to remind us of what matters most. The gospel and the Lord’s plan of happiness and salvation should remind us. What matters most is what lasts longest, and our families are for eternity.

("What Matters Most is What Lasts Longest" - M. Russell Ballard 2005)
