This Family Understands

One of the great Reasons to Rejoice is understanding the importance of the family and parental roles clearly defined in The Family, A Proclamation to the World . Marriage between a man and a woman is essential to God’s eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Successful marriages are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness. They are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In their sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. I am grateful to be married to a woman who shares these truths and values. Together we strive to honor our sacred marriage vows and covenants with the Lord. It brings us great comfort to know that our marriage is eternal. Click on the link below to see why I feel so strongly about this:
