Seminary Graduation

Tonight was Seth's Seminary graduation. These are some of his other friends who also graduated. His high school graduation is Thursday. Seminary has been a blessing in the lives of all my children and I am so grateful for that. It will be a blessing to them all their lives. They are armed with knowledge because of their time in Seminary and the blessing of knowing where to find the answers to some of life's most difficult the scriptures.

"The objective of seminary is to help youth understand and rely on the teachings and Atonement of Jesus Christ, qualify for the blessings of the temple, and prepare themselves, their families, and others for eternal life with their Father in Heaven."

"We have a great responsibility ... in the Church to make sure our own members, our own young people, do not fall into that unfortunate category of being blinded, of being good, fine, worthy young men and women who are kept from the truths of the scriptures because they do not know where to find those truths and because they do not possess confidence between the covers of their standard works.... We ought to have a Church full of women and men who know the scriptures thoroughly, who cross-reference and mark them, who develop lessons and talks from the Topical Guide, and who have mastered the maps, the Bible Dictionary, and the other helps that are contained in this wonderful set of standard works" Howard W. Hunter
