What was stated as being a “sort of magic mirror” that showed men’s true traits?
a. The Mormon Trail
c. The Mormon Battalion
(B) Memorize the names of the Quorum of the Twelve
When Elder L. Tom Perry became a member of the Quorum of the Twelve in April 1974, he recalled in his conference address the teachings of his father concerning the general authorities: “I was reared in a home in which the children were taught great love and respect for the General Authorities of the Church. I remember as I was learning the names of the members of the Council of the Twelve as a Primary graduation requirement, my father spent time and patience to teach me about the lives of each, as well as the required memory work. To this day, I think you can ask me at any time to recite the names of those great men . . . and I can repeat them rapidly and remember events in their lives.” As evidenced by the life of Elder Perry, great examples can wield a powerful influence.
