“Youth as Temple and Family History Consultants”

Marilyn Thomsen

Categories: LDS, I

Talk Abstract:
At the 2020 RootsTech Elder Bednar said “youth don’t need to listen to adults tell them how great this work is, or your turn is coming. They need to be anxiously engaged in this work right now to move it across the world.” Marilyn Thomsen will provide some real examples and tips for wards to actively use and empower their youth as consultants. Count on the blessings resulting from youth doing family history.
