Dear Son: Write More Often-Love Dad


October 16,1974

“Dear Son,

I have a few minutes this morning so I thought I would write and let you know how we are all doing- We still hear regularly from your brother. He is still enjoying his work as a missionary and is teaching some good families…Mother is working two days at the Temple and I work one evening. Church responsibilities are as busy as ever. I have two marriages to perform this week so it should be a busy one with all the other things there are to do!

…How is school by this time? Do you enjoy your studies? Are you learning anything? I hope you are enjoying yourself and are taking advantage of every opportunity.  Also, do your best to continue to observe all the teachings of the gospel and Heavenly Father will bless you with the help you need. The temptations are great but the satisfaction that comes from self discipline and keeping the commandments is also great. Study hard and you will receive the desire to study and learn. Continue to be active in the church and encourage others to do the same-

We all miss you and love you- we pray for you each day that you will be protected from sin and accident and will be successful at school. Write more often- Love Dad.”

Good counsel for a son back then. Good counsel now, for anyone!
