From 1960 —
This Is the Life!
Four young singers – healthy, happy, wholesome – harmonize in a church-sponsored quartet contest.
Elsewhere in hundreds of places around the world, hundreds of thousands of young Mormons live zestful, wholesome, happy lives. They love life. They’re happy because they live in tune with the teachings of parents and church.
From these teachings they know that life is meant to be happy. From childhood they have heard the words of ancient and modern prophets:
In the beginning “the morning stars sang together and the sons of God shouted for joy”; and “men are that they may have joy.”
From sacred scriptures and the words of living prophets, they know that life has continuity and purpose; that they are the eternal children of an Eternal Father who, like their earth parents, wants them to live abundantly and be happy.
They know that this life is for living and enjoying, and for preparation for the future.
Yes, this is the life – the real, vital, earth life they were all promised long, long ago in another sphere … separate but inseparable from what has been and what is yet to be … the healthy, happy, wholesome life so richly deserved an so joyously lived by thousands upon thousands of faithful Mormon youth.
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF
