"I am convinced that one of the greatest things that can come into any home to cause the boys and girls in that home to grow up in a love of God, and in a love of the gospel of Jesus Christ, is to have family prayer. It is not for the father of the family alone to pray, but for the mother and for the children to do so also, that they may partake of the spirit of prayer, and be in harmony, be in tune, to have the radio, so to speak, in communication with the Spirit of the Lord. I believe that there are very few who go astray, that very few lose their faith, who have once had a knowledge of the gospel, and who never neglect their prayers in their families, and their secret supplications to God."

Houses of Heber J. Grant

These are pictures of the houses that Heber J. Grant had lived in during his calling as an Apostle and then as Prophet. His father died not long after Heber was born, so he began working early to try to support his family. This work ethic is attributed to his successful career as a businessman, entrepreneur and land developer. He was called as an apostle at the young age of 25 on October 16, 1882. He was sustained as Church President on November 23, 1918.
