At TheFamily.com we strive to share various ways of helping families become stronger and to take responsibility for their actions.
We do believe that family is the fundamental unit of society and that the Father and Mother need to teach their children to become self reliant and to live providently. Families need to be prepared for emergencies and make sure that physically, they have enough to eat and drink and can take care of any medical issues and needs without going to the store for a period of time should any emergencies arise.
Children should become stronger mentally with good education and to stay away from pornography and drugs. There is aggressive Spiritual Warfare going on today and members of the family need to know the difference between good and bad so they can choose wisely. Parents need to teach them values and correct principles so they understand the difference. Working hard and getting a good job besides being charitable is most important and learning to be kind and giving to those in need.
Time is the BEST thing you can give your children and spouse! We highly recommend an evening together as a family which has proven to make a big difference in many homes.
We encourage families set aside Monday night as “family home evening” to spend TIME with each other. This is a time and place for families to study the gospel together and to do other activities that strengthen the family by learning and sharing, to teach values and correct principles, to create family memories, and to increase unity and love.
The home is the most important place for learning and teaching children where they can SEE a sermon from their parents instead of just HEARING one; and where parents can develop a closer relationship with their greatest investment, their posterity!
No other organization can take the place of the family. Parents are to nurture their children with love and gospel teaching.
It is the perfect place to share personal and funny stories, one’s feelings and experiences with how parents dealt with issues that their children may be facing, and the best time to find their eternal relationship with God and their Savior Jesus Christ through family prayer together.
We can promise you that this is what has helped keep our families stay so close together throughout these many years. Nothing can compensate for failure in the home. The BEST gift you can give to your children is your TIME!
The Lamb of God is the Savior of The World for All Families.
Forty days after His Resurrection
, Jesus and His Apostles were gathered together on the Mount of Olives. The time had come for Jesus to leave the earth. He had completed all the work that He had to do at that time. He was to return to our Heavenly Father until the time of His Second Coming.
What did Jesus do during those forty days? He visited “His other Sheep” … those of other nations!
“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” John 10: 16
“Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and in the earth beneath; and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth?
Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also.
For behold, I shall speak unto the Jews and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the Nephites and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto the other tribes of the house of Israel, which I have led away, and they shall write it; and I shall also speak unto all nations of the earth and they shall write it.” 2 Ne. 29: 7-8, 12
“And the angel spake unto me, saying: These last records, which thou hast seen among the Gentiles, shall establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken away from them; and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people, that the Lamb of God is the Son of the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved.” 1 Ne. 13: 40
“Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into a? this same Jesus, which is b up from you into heaven, shall so c in like d as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1: 11
The Bible and The Book of Mormon are available to us today.
The other records of Jesus will soon be forth coming.
“May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter, and every window open to great possibility.”
