When a family digs into its history, members are certain to find treasured ancestral stories that educate, entertain, inspire and uplift.
That is the motivation behind a series of articles found this week in Mormon Times.
As President Boyd K. Packer, president of the Quorum of the Twelve, recorded in his book, “Mine Errand from the Lord,” family history work is more than getting names processed to go to the temple.
“It is also family relationships,” he said. “It is family reunions, it is family connections, and it is keeping the accounts of the things that are handed down from parents to children and passed through families that connect and make the spiritual connection through this power of the Holy Ghost, the Spirit by which we operate.”
As you read these stories, we hope you come away feeling educated, entertained, inspired and uplifted. We also hope you come away with a renewed desire to explore and uncover similar stories within your own family tree.
