Quote of the Day
We've enshrined the purity, sanctity, value, and importance of bringing children into the world, yet we don't discuss death.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

When someone died in the wilderness of frontier America, that person's physical remains were buried and the handcarts continued west, but the mourning survivors had hope for their loved one's eternal soul. However, when someone dies spiritually in the wilderness of sin, hope may be replaced by dread and fear for the loved one's eternal welfare.
James E. Faust

George Washington Cable
