… In addition to the important verses about Easter in the New Testament, we as Latter-day Saints are endowed with a most remarkable Easter gift! … I am referring of course to the Book of Mormon, and more specifically, to the account of Jesus Christ appearing to inhabitants in the New World, in His resurrected glory. …

His visit as a resurrected Savior, introduced by God the Father, is a most glorious and triumphant Easter message. It will help our family members gain a personal testimony of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer, who broke the bands of death.
