Hunter, p. 229).

May we remember the eternal nature of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and Their eternal love for each of us. May we learn and grow in our understanding of the plan of salvation, the saving power of the Atonement, and the eternal nature and brotherhood of each of us.

Several years ago, I attended the musical production Cheaper by the Dozen being performed at the SCERA Theater in Orem, Utah.

From the audience, it appeared both of these young men were enjoying being part of this entertaining show.
