Family History

In the October 2012 General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Elder Richard G. Scott, a member of the quorum of the twelve apostles, made a statement that took me by surprise. He said
A sure way to eliminate the influence of the adversary. I thought, Prayer? Fasting? Scripture Study? Family Home Evening? I did not think "Family History." 
Elder Scott is a smart guy though, plus he was definitely inspired to say that in General Conference, so I figured I'd give it a try.
I explored the church youth website and found the Youth and Family History page. That lead me to watch the tutorial videos, then check out Family Search and New Family Search which collectively help us do family history work. I didn't get to spend too much time on it, but in the time I did spend, I discovered that family history is a lot more fun (intense even) than I had originally thought! I will absolutely be doing more of this, and if you have an LDS account, you can too! Check it out! I'm off to do some more!
Have joy!

  1. Wow, that quote from Elder Scott is very motivating. What a great idea, Hannah! The youth of the church are so savvy and technologically minded. Think of all the work that would get done if everyone would adopt your same attitude.
    I am enjoying your blog:) Keep it up.
