What We Do In This Life Determines Whether We Will Become Heavenly Parents or Not!

Elder L. Tom Perry (Quorum of the Twelve Apostles)

"President Brigham Young explained that our families are not yet ours. The Lord has committed them to us to see how we will treat them. Only if we are faithful will they be given to us forever. What we do on earth determines whether or not we will be worthy to become heavenly parents."(Gospel Principles [manual, 1997], 231).   (From “The Importance of the Family,” Ensign, May 2003, 40)
