A bold text treatment of 5 Messages by Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

“Though our circumstances may be different, our hearts are not. For this reason, there are certain messages that all of God’s children need to hear.” In this condensed version of his Education Week devotional, Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf identifies five universal and eternal truths that can bring light, love, and hope to all of God’s children.

After opening her devotional address by singing the classic tune from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Megan Sanborn Jones, chair of BYU’s Department of Theatre and Media Arts, shared her thoughts on the parable of the good Samaritan: “To be a good neighbor is to wonder how your words and actions will impact others rather than to wonder how you will be impacted.”

“When my daughter was two weeks old, I held her and was overcome with the feeling that I was holding something divine,” remembers Amber LeBaron Corkin (right). Later that day while reading the scriptures, she suddenly felt a desire to share with her daughter the stories of women in scripture. Corkin called her twin sister, Aubri LeBaron Robinson, who had an infant girl of her own, and shared the idea. Together, they immediately got to work.
