The Christmas season is a natural and beautiful time to study Jesus’s life and to strive to emulate His character and attributes. As you do, you can know that He is the Christ, the Son of God, and that He atoned for your sins. #ChristmasDevo

President Eyring spoke of peace this holiday season.
To have the spirit of Christmas, we must try to love as He loved. His words to you and to me are “Love one another, as I have loved you.” #ChristmasDevo
