Elder Larry S. Kacher of the Seventy spoke at a devotional in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square on March 3. He answered questions submitted to him beforehand by students from LDS Business College. Before the devotional, Elder Kacher spoke on six common questions that many students had posed.
How do I help my less active or non-member family members?
Elder Kacher invited the audience to stand if they have someone in their family who is not a member or is less active. The entire congregation stood.
“We’re all in this together,” he said. “That’s what the gospel is.”
For over 40 years, Elder Kacher is still the only member of his family to have ever joined the Church. Recently, he invited sister missionaries to talk to his mother, but she refused to let them talk or invite them back. However, several months ago, she called him with a message. “Don’t give up on me,” she said.
