  • Lesson in the quorum today was based on the talk "That the Lost May Be Found" by Elder M. Russell Ballard who counseled us on what we can do to not become lost including [1]  prioritizing by putting everything we do outside the home in subjection to and in support of what happens inside our homes; [2] doing things in the right order, specifically marriage first and then family; [3] making sure we, as husbands, are equal partners with our wives in our marriage; and [4] using the family resources of the Church, whereby in raising our children, we can draw upon the help of the ward.
