They were trying to do these things, but not always as the priority and, amidst the chaos, sometimes neglected. They changed focus to not to worry about the less-important things.

What do I want my grandchildren to know? I want them and you to know that I know the Savior lives and loves us.

We must want to change our hearts and our desires and be humble enough to seek the help and forgiveness of those we may have hurt or forsaken.
