The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - Ellen W. Smoot

Occasionally I place my hands on both sides of the face of one of my children or grandchildren when they are doing something that will bring immediate or long-term harm to themselves in the process. I look deeply into their eyes and carefully explain to them how much they are loved and cherished. Then I describe the harm that could result from the actions they have chosen.

I can envision the Savior holding our faces between His hands and pleading with each of us individually to remain steadfast and immovable and faithful to the God who made us. – Ellen W. Smoot, “Steadfast and Immovable,” Ensign (CR) November 2001
