Message from the First Presidency

Our dear brothers and sisters,

The children and youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are beloved sons and daughters of God. They have the potential to make a great impact on the world.

The principles taught in this effort for children and youth represent a higher, holier way to encourage the rising generation to follow Jesus Christ and apply His gospel in all areas of their lives. This major effort will include gospel learning, the privilege of service, personal development, and exciting activities. This effort starts at home. Parents have a sacred responsibility to teach their children in light and truth. Church leaders offer valuable support and guidance to children, youth, and their families.

We love you. We have confidence in you. We promise that our Father in Heaven will continue to bless and sustain you as you lead and guide His children in faith.

The First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

the Savior
