"We call upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society."
As the "fundamental unit of society",
the family is also the "building block" of society.
So, it was fitting that we made these
for the final day of our
Family is everything.
Family is where we all begin,
and where we will all return.
I believe that this world is only as good
as the families in it.
That is why we must strengthen and celebrate families
beginning with our own.
I am so thankful for the prompting that lead me down
this path of teaching the principles found in
to my children.
As Sister Julie B. Beck has said,
"'We talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ', and His full doctrine which is based on the theology of the family. We are 'not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ' or His doctrine. We are willing to defend it and teach it with clarity. And we know that as we do so we will have heavenly help."
I have felt that heavenly help during the last 30 days
as we have studied this inspired document.
I hope that everyone reading this will take
up the challenge to study The Family Proclamation
together, purposefully, thoughtfully, and prayerfully.
I promise, it is worth every investment.
