Family



1). “Parents much bring light and truth into their homes by one family prayer, one scripture study session, one family home evening, one book read aloud, one song, and one family meal at a time. They know that the influence of righteous, conscientious, persistent, daily parenting is among the most powerful and sustaining forces for good in the world. The health of any society, the happiness of its people, their prosperity, and their peace all find common roots in the teaching of children in the home.”
L. Tom Perry “Mothers Teaching Children in the Home” April 2010 General Conference

2). “I give counsel to husbands and wives. Pray for the love which allows you to see the good in your companion. Pray for the love that makes weakness and mistakes seem small. Pray for the love to make your companion’s joy your own. Pray for the love to want to lessen the load and soften the sorrows of your companion.”
Henry B. Eyring “Our Perfect Example” October 2009 General Conference

3). “One hundred years ago, President Joseph F. Smith connected happiness directly to the family and admonished us to focus our efforts there. He said: ‘There can be no genuine happiness separate and apart from the home. … There is no happiness without service, and there is no service greater than that which converts the home into a divine institution, and which promotes and preserves family life. The home is what needs reforming’”
Elder M Russell Ballard, “That the Lost May Be Found,” General Conference April 2012

4). “Children teach us how to find joy even under the most challenging circumstances. Children haven’t yet learned to be depressed by concentrating on the things they don’t have. They find joy in what is available to them.”
Richard G. Scott, “Finding Joy in Life,” April 1996 General Conference

5). “The creation of life is a great responsibility for a married couple. It is the challenge of mortality to be a worthy and responsible parent. Neither man nor woman can bear children alone. It was meant that children have two parents—both a father and a mother. No other pattern or process can replace this one.”
Elder Boyd K. Packer, “And a Little Child Shall Lead Them,” General Conference 2012

6). “Our present prophet has 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 the success of a marriage.”
Elder L. Tom Perry, “The Heritage of Our Summer Holidays,” August 3, 1980 BYU Fireside

7). “While Lehi’s vision includes all people, the culminating doctrinal concept is the eternal significance of the family. ‘The family is ordained of God. It is the most important unit in time and in eternity.’ As Lehi partook of the fruit of the tree of life (the love of God), he was desirous that his ‘family should partake of it also.’”
Quentin L Cook, “In Tune with the Music of Faith,” April 2012 General Conference

8). "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."
Dieter F. Uchdorf, "Of Things That Matter Most" October 2010 General Conference

9). “Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.”
Neil L. Anderson, “Children” October 2011 General Conference

10). “Our most important and powerful assignments are in the family. They are important because the family has the opportunity at the start of a child’s life to put feet firmly on the path home. Parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are made more powerful guides and rescuers by the bonds of love that are the very nature of a family.”
—Henry B. Eyring, “Help Them on Their Way Home” Ensign May 2010
