"We, as Latter-day Saints, should resolve to hold high our modern-day 'title of liberty' in memory of our God and our religion, our fathers and our mothers, our flag, and our country (see Alma 46:12, 36). We can honor through our lives the thousands who died crossing the plains and in the valleys and settlements. The spiritual values for which they died should ever be lodged in our hearts. We will carry the torch of faith which they bequeathed to us to light the way for those who follow." - Vaughn J Featherstone, "Following in Their Footsteps," Ensign, July 1997, p. 10

“Our families can be given a gift to know what God would have them do and to learn it in a way that will encourage them to do it. God has provided such a guide. It is the Holy Ghost. We cannot give that to our family members as a companion, but they can earn it. The Holy Ghost can be their constant companion only after they have been faithful and after they have received the ordinances of baptism and the laying on of hands by those with proper authority. But even before baptism, a child or an adult can have the Holy Ghost testify to their hearts of sacred truth. They must act on that testimony to retain it, but it will guide them toward goodness, and it can lead them to accept and keep the covenants which will in time bring them the companionship of the Holy Ghost. We would, if we could, leave our families a legacy of testimony that it might reach through the generations.” - Henry B. Eyring, “A Legacy of Testimony,” Ensign (CR), May 1996, p. 62
