NURTURE THE RISING GENERATION

October 2009

Mothers who know are nurturers. (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society general President)


Elder Quentin L. Cook, a member of the Twelve Apostles, recently spokes of responsibilities seminary and institute teachers have in “helping young people make good choices, strengthening their testimonies, helping them see foolishness in its true light, preparing the rising generation for missionary service, and nurturing those who return to make correct choices.”
“One of the challenges today is to help students understand choices which, while not inherently evil, are not the best choices that they can make. In homes where family scripture study, family home evening and family prayer are not held, we need be a source of example, knowledge and spiritual strength that will allow the youth to avoid issues that would undermine their testimonies at the same time that we are building a doctrinal foundation for those testimonies."
