Strengthen Families, Strengthen Society

"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.

"'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.


  1. good job, now submit your ideas to the ensign or other lds publications to share all your creativity!

  2. I so agree with you! The family is everything! When my mom passed away, my sister made each family a wooden block with pics of my mom at various stages in her life. It's so nice to have it right here on my desk. She mod podged over the pics so even my little ones can look at it and turn it in their little hands and know it is Grandma since they will never meet her in this life.

  3. Oh. My. Gosh.  I ran into a post about teaching family about The Family: A Proclamation to the World and I just can't get over this blog!  You are truly amazing & a lot of women, I'm sure, aspire to be more like you. Thank you for sharing.  I am now a "regular" reader. :)

  4. Wow, thanks for your comment, Lisa!  Welcome to my little corner of the internet!  We are having a fairly lazy summer...waiting for baby #4 to arrive.  I'll be on here more frequently after she comes. Until then, have fun exploring! :)  Hope to hear from you again soon!
