God has always spoken to His children through prophets.

That pattern continues today!

The Old Testament is a record of God’s interactions with His children going back to the beginning of humankind. Stories of Noah, Moses, Enoch, and others teach us about an ancient pattern: God speaks to and guides His children through prophets.

That same pattern applies to us today. Our living prophet is President Russell M. Nelson. He teaches, warns, and encourages us. It’s our choice—just like the people in scripture stories—whether or not to listen!
