Second Quorum of the Seventy (April 5, 2003 – October 3, 2009)

General Conference Addresses

  • April 2004 General Conference
    • Marriage and Family: Our Sacred Responsibility
      • “Marriage is meant to be and must be a loving, binding, harmonious relationship between a man and a woman. When a husband and a wife understand that the family is ordained of God and that marriage can be filled with promises and blessings extending into the eternities, separation and divorce would seldom be a consideration in the Latter-day Saint home. Couples would realize that the sacred ordinances and covenants made in the house of the Lord provide the means whereby they can return to the presence of God.”
      • “Loving, protecting, and nurturing our children are among the most sacred and eternally important things we will do. Worldly belongings will vanish, today’s number-one movie or song will be irrelevant tomorrow, but a son or a daughter is eternal.”
      • “Hold your family home evenings, for this is where the gospel is taught, a testimony gained, and the family fortified.”
