"Become the Best that you can be."

Brigham took time for his children. His daughter Clarissa Young Spencer said of her father, “No child ever loved, revered, and cherished a father more than I did mine.” Another daughter, Susa Young Gates said he was “an ideal father. Kind to a fault, tender, thoughtful, just and firm . . . None of us feared him; all of us adored him.”

Brigham Young wrote to his sons often when they grew up and went away to school. He counseled them to keep the spirit of the Lord with them always. “Cultivate this spirit and you will find that it shall be a wall of fire around you, and your glory in the midst of you.”
