Selected Teachings on
Earthly Parenting Determines if
We Will Become Heavenly Parents

L. Tom Perry (Quorum of the Twelve)

President Brigham Young explained that our families are not yet ours. The Lord has committed them to us to see how we will treat them. Only if we are faithful will they be given to us forever. What we do on earth determines whether or not we will be worthy to become heavenly parents (Gospel Principles [manual, 1997], p.231). (Ensign, May 2003)
