Stake and ward councils need to reach out to families in the church who do not have the blessings of the Melchizedek Priesthood in their homes.
The efforts of church members can help these families realize the fullness of the gospel and temple blessings.
Families today face unprecedented challenges that are stripping from homes peace and confidence in the future.
Changing forces in society are bearing down on families. These conditions, coupled with the erosion of moral values, can best be dealt with in the family.
"This is achieved when the powers of righteousness are marshaled in the home under the worthy priesthood leadership of the father, equally yoked with a good and righteous mother."
The home is the basis of a righteous life. "Families, where the priesthood is honored and exercised, will be able to endure present pressures and become eternal families."
