Today I, ____________________, will follow the example of the Savior as I serve others
“Serve by doing temple and family history work.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today I, ____________________, will do family history work.
If it is possible for you, commit the following:
I, ____________________, will do temple work in the temple before October is over.
“I invite [you] to learn about and experience the Spirit of Elijah. I encourage you to study, to search out your ancestors, and to prepare yourselves to perform proxy baptisms in the house of the Lord for your kindred dead (see D&C 124:28–36). And I urge you to help other people identify their family histories.
“As you respond in faith to this invitation, your hearts shall turn to the fathers. The promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will be implanted in your hearts. Your patriarchal blessing, with its declaration of lineage, will link you to these fathers and be more meaningful to you. Your love and gratitude for your ancestors will increase. Your testimony of and conversion to the Savior will become deep and abiding. And I promise you will be protected against the intensifying influence of the adversary. As you participate in and love this holy work, you will be safeguarded in your youth and throughout your lives.” – The Hearts of the Children Shall Turn by David A. Bednar
