A thought from the scriptures

And thou shalt teach [God's wordsT diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. - Deut. 6:7

"The family circle is everlasting, and so are its responsibilities and blessings," said Elder Richard L. Evans of the Council of the Twelve during the October 1964 general conference. "It is an act of greatness and heroism to hold a family together, to set before them an example, to teach them in ways of truth, to live a life of consistency . . . , to counsel, to love, to understand, to pray, to be patient, and to do the thousand other unnamed things that it takes to rear a family, to make a house a home - and to do it every day, sometimes without seeming gratitude - and to lead a family righteously unto eternal life. And since it is our Father's purpose to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of His children, what could better be our purpose as parents?"And what if it does take 20 years - or 40 - or forever? What can life better be used for? Keeping a home, a family, going and together, is heroic. Thank God for faithful parents."
