Family Position Statement
We were sent to earth not on our own, but to be in a family unit. The family is the training place where we learn to develop characteristics that make us more like our Savior and Heavenly Father. We learn love, patience, kindness, repentance, forgiveness, service, selflessness, compassion, loyalty, dependability, and so much more. As a child our biggest responsibility is to learn to be obedient and to love. As a parent our stewardship in this area is huge! We are responsible to use the guidance of the gospel to help teach our children the values that will help them live up to their potential. We set the example of what priorities should be held in their lives. We show them what a good mother/father is and does. We are to make the home a safe place for them to learn. The church has given us some wonderful tools to assist us, but in the end it is our responsibility to follow through.
