“War is the greatest evil Satan has invented to corrupt our hearts and souls. We should honor our soldiers, but we should never honor war.”
Dean Hughes, Far From Home

“If we believe in them, love them and trust them, they see who they are through our eyes.”
Dean Hughes, Promises to Keep: Diane's Story

“Before we have children, we think most of the parents sitting in sacrament meeting ought to “do something about their kids.” Once we have kids, we think everyone ought to be a lot more understanding about what we’re trying to survive during the meeting. And once our kids are grown, we think, “I never let my kids get away with that.” We really all need to chill out.”
Dean Hughes, All Moms Go to Heaven
