Come, Follow Me


As a new mother, it’s sometimes scary to think about raising my children to be strong disciples of Jesus Christ. I often wonder how I can possibly teach them everything they will need to know to navigate an increasingly confusing world. 

However, I find guidance from the way that Nephi taught his family. In 2 Nephi 25:26 he wrote, “And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.”

Wilford Woodruff counseled, “If parents instill righteous principles in the minds of their children, those children will be affected by them throughout all their lives.” 

One thing is certain: when we focus our homes and our hearts on the Savior, those around us, especially our family members, will be affected. They will receive the hope for a remission of their sins and an eternity of joy with Christ.
