A new website dedicated to Youth and Family History is now available at lds.org/youth/family-history. Elder David A. Bednar mentioned the site during his October general conference address titled "The Hearts of the Children Shall Turn." He said, "I invite the young people of the Church to learn and experience the Spirit of Elijah."
An introductory video available at the new site given by Elder Bednar highlights the importance of temple work. In addition, youth from the Church share experiences about the joy of temple and family history work in the video. The site also offers fun step-by-step videos that walk youth through the process of getting involved in the work.
A comments forum appears at the bottom of the page detailing temple experiences from youth around the world. Elder Bednar said, "We are here to participate in the work of salvation. That's who we are, that's why we're here on the earth. ... You were prepared for this day. The time is now."
