    The Living Christ

    The prophets and apostles wrote “The Living Christ” to tell the world about Jesus Christ. Read part of it each month and memorize the line in italics.

    “We declare in words of solemnity that His priesthood and His Church have been restored upon the earth—‘built upon the foundation of … apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone’ (Ephesians 2:20).”

    The Strong Foundation of the Church

    The foundation of a building keeps it strong. The most important foundation stone is called the cornerstone. The prophets and apostles are like the foundation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Jesus Christ is like the most important stone, the cornerstone.

    Write the names of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles on the foundation stones.

    How does following Jesus Christ and His prophets and apostles keep you strong?
