A short quote from Elder Robert D Hales of the of the First Quorum of Seventy
“It is a privilege for me to write to children who read the Friend and to tell them about a thrilling and important gospel truth, one that all of us should understand and remember throughout our lives.
This great truth is contained in the words of the song “I Am a Child of God,” written by Sister Naomi W. Randall with music by Mildred W. Pettit. The fact that each one of us is a child of God is not known to everyone. We come to understand this and all principles of the gospel by studying the scriptures and by listening to our prophets.” Friend, Mar 1978 : Friend to Friend
