John Taylor

“If I . . . was the head of a family, I would want to teach my family right and teach them the principles of virtue, holiness, purity, honor and integrity, that they might be worthy citizens, and that they might be able to stand before God, that when they and I get through this world, we might be worthy to meet the elect of God . . . Therefore, every morning, as head of my family, I should dedicate myself and my family to God” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: John Taylor, p. 195-196).
