Faith, Family, Facts, and Fruits…

“A church, or any way of life, should be judged by the fruits or the results that it generates. . . .”One of the fruits [of Mormonism] is a longer life. Studies show that practicing Mormons are healthier and therefore live longer than the national average. . . .”Second, those who are married in and attend the temple regularly have a divorce rate far below the national and world average.”Third, we achieve an educational level that is higher than the national average.”Fourth, over 70,000 members volunteer at their own expense to serve for 18 to 24 months in humanitarian efforts, Church service assignments, and full time missionary service throughout the world.”

M. Russell Ballard, , “Faith, Family, Facts, and Fruits,” Ensign, Nov. 2007, 26 27
