Elder Ballard Shares Funny, Adorable Church Commercial on Facebook

His message was short and sweet, and so was the minute-long Church commercial that accompanied it--one that embodies all the quintessential elements that make a good Church commercial: funny slogans, cute kids, and a touching message.

Parents, let’s listen and know what is important in the lives of our children. If we fail to listen, if we don’t try to understand their point of view, how can we expect them to come to us for guidance in making important decisions?

Along with this great video, which has received nearly 70,000 views on Facebook, Elder M. Russell Ballard shared this message: "Parents, let’s listen and know what is important in the lives of our children. If we fail to listen, if we don’t try to understand their point of view, how can we expect them to come to us for guidance in making important decisions?"

Though short, these thoughts and the influence they can have are invaluable. We are so lucky to have Church leaders who remind us of these important truths.
