The Gospel Blesses Families
Here's an excerpt directly from "Preach My Gospel", the second heading for lesson 1.
"The restored gospel blesses and helps husbands and wives, parents and children as they strive to develop stronger relationships and spiritual strength in their families. These blessings are available now and in eternity. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides help with current concerns and challenges.
"Because families are ordained of God, they are the most important social unit in time and in eternity. God has established families to bring happiness to His children, allow them to learn correct principles in a loving atmosphere, and prepare them for eternal life. The home is the best place to teach, learn, and apply principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"A home established on gospel principles will be a place of refuge and safety. It will be a place where the Spirit of the Lord can abide, blessing family members with peace, joy, and happiness. Through prophets in every age, including our own, God has revealed His plan of happiness for individuals and families.
Isn't it wonderful to have these truths to strengthen us as we face life in such a confusing society? I am so grateful Heavenly Father has sent prophets again to the earth to ground us in the ways of happiness! It is so comforting to hear their words and know that the importance of the family, as defined by God, is not subject to change with the whims of our crazy world. It is an eternal unit. My family is my greatest source of joy in this life, and my greatest hope for the next.Lesson 1 Heading 2 The Gospel Blesses Families
