“Our Father has a family. It’s me!
It’s you, all others too: we are His children.
He sent each one of us to earth, through birth,
to live and learn here in families.

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the family is of God.”

Our Father in Heaven created the family unit to give us the best chance of returning to live with Him again someday. No matter our family circumstances, past or present, we can do our part to honor and strengthen families. 

Questions to ponder: 

  • Think of the family you grew up in. How can you see God’s hand in placing you where He did? 
  • What do you value most about your family? Consider sharing a photo of your family with some of your thoughts.
