“A Wonderful Time of Year,” Friend, Dec. 2004, 2
Merry Christmas to the children of the world! This is a joyous time of year when our hearts are filled with love as we think about the birth of the Savior and feel sincere gratitude to our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Because of the Savior’s birth and mission, we will receive the blessing of the Resurrection. Through the Savior’s Atonement, as we keep the commandments, serve others, and do what the Lord has asked us to do, we will return to live with our Heavenly Father.
Our sincere prayer is that each of you and your families will feel the Savior’s love at this wonderful time of year.
We bear our witness that Jesus is our Savior, the Son of God.
The First Presidency
