Gratitude for God, Family, and Country

Called Unto Liberty, 20th Century Sermons, Ezra Taft Benson

Thank God for family, for country, and for the knowledge I have that God lives, that he hears and answers prayer and that he loves his children everywhere and that he loves this great nation, America, established by men whom he inspired for that very purpose.
