Family history doesn't just benefit those for whom the work is done; it also brings us close to our Heavenly Father, those we serve, and each other. It helps us keep the Holy Ghost with us. See this wonderful young woman's story about second chances and the power of the Atonement in her life as she overcame her addictions and turned to the Lord (and the part that family history played in her transformation).
P.S. If you haven't had the chance lately, this talk by Elder Bednar is wonderful inspiration to get started and keep going with family history. Click HERE to view.
