The Family : A Proclamation to the World

 As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I wanted to create a blog that reflects some of my thoughts and feelings on a document that is precious to me : The Family : A Proclamation to the World.

This document, compiled by the Presidency of the Church - and therefore by Prophets, Seers, and Revelators, consists of divine truths about the family.

It stresses the importance of our male and female identities, and the different callings given to men and women. It also teaches about the importance of the family, spouses' responsibilities to each other, and parents' responsibilities to their families.

This blog will draw on those truths and I hope to offer new insights and ideas that can be put to use to strengthen families, while strengthening my own as well.

I fully sustain the leadership of the Church. I know that the family is essential to God's plan for His children, and that by the proper authority, found only in this, the true Church of Christ, families can be sealed for eternity.
