“The Lord wants you to educate your minds and hands, whatever your chosen field. Whether it be repairing refrigerators, or the work of a skilled surgeon, you must train yourselves. … You will bring honor to the Church and you will be generously blessed because of that training,” President Gordon B. Hinckley, “A Prophet’s Counsel and Prayer for Youth,” Jan. 2001.
As a family, read the Ensign article, "The Power of Education." Share the quote in the story from President Hinckley that says, “You need all the education you can get. Sacrifice a car; sacrifice anything that is needed to be sacrificed to qualify yourselves to do the work of the world.” As a family define sacrifice and discuss the blessings that come from it. Consider sharing your feelings about the importance of education and preparing for the future.
