The family life

“We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner and family home evening and by just having fun together. In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e,time.”

Elder Dieter D Uchtdorf  “Of things that matter most”

 

“Family time is sacred time and should be protected and respected. We urge our members to show devotion to their families.”

Elder Quentin L. Cook “And a Little Child Shall Lead Them.”

 “I promise you that as you do, you will feel the love of the Savior for that person and His love for you, and it will not seem to come from a great distance. For you, that challenge may be in a family, it may be in a community, or it may be across a nation.”

Elder Henry B Eyring –“Where is the pavilion”

 

“There is nothing that has come or will come into your family as important as the sealing blessings. There is nothing more important than honoring the marriage and family covenants you have made or will make in the temples of God.”

Elder Henry B. Eyring “Families Under Covenant.”

“The prophets have warned us that the home is the place to save society. A proper home, of course, is not created automatically when a boy and girl fall in love and marry. It takes those same virtues that were taught in pioneer homes—faith, courage, discipline, and dedication—to make a marriage successful.”

Elder L. Tom Perry “The Strength of Our Heritage.”

“When compared to eternal verities, most of the questions and concerns of daily living are really rather trivial. What should we have for dinner? What color should we paint the living room? Should we sign Johnny up for soccer? These questions and countless others like them lose their significance when times of crisis arise, when loved ones are hurt or injured, when sickness enters the house of good health, when life’s candle dims and darkness threatens. Our thoughts become focused, and we are easily able to determine what is really important and what is merely trivial.”

Thomas S. Monson “The Race of Life”

“And, of course, societies at large are strengthened as families grow stronger. Commitments to family and values are the basic cause. Nearly everything else is effect. When couples marry and make commitments to each other, they greatly increase their chances of economic well-being.”

Elder Russell M. Ballard “That the Lost May Be Found.”

“And when families work and play together, neighborhoods and communities flourish, economies improve, and less government and fewer costly safety nets are required.”

Elder Russell M. Ballard “That the Lost May Be Found.” 

“Now, my dear brethren… I plead with you to control your tempers, to put a smile upon your faces, which will erase anger; speak out with words of love and peace, appreciation, and respect. If you will do this, your lives will be without regret. Your marriages and family relationships will be preserved. You will be much happier. You will do greater good. You will feel a sense of peace that will be wonderful.”

Gordon B. Hinckley “Slow to Anger.”

My son has given priesthood service across three continents but most importantly in his home and within his family. He has built his life around them. He works close to home, and he often returns to join his wife and younger children at the lunch hour. His family lives very near Sister Eyring and me. They care for our yard as though it were their own.

Elder Henry B. Eyring –“Help them aim high”
