The family is under attack from every direction.
I see sons and daughters disrespectful to their parents. And parents equally rude to their children. Drugs, alcohol, pornography all wreaking havoc. Infidelity and sarcasm and violence and just plain meanness.

There are no heroes left.
We used to have heroes. Lou Gehrig. Douglas MacArthur. Amelia Earhart. Now we have so many celebrities that "get caught" and soil their clean images. Goodbye Tiger, Michael, even presidents.

Where can we anchor our families in this storm?
Oh, I know.


  1. Girlie, my husband and I were just talking about this IMPORTANT piece of FRAMED paper in our home. Every home should have it displayed. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

    "Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children." This is something so many forget once the "honeymoon" stage is over.

    Thanks Jen for posting this. What a great reminder!

  2. Thank you for the hugs, Jenny. :) I hope you're feeling better...hugs from me to you! And thank you for the family post as well! We've been talking about this in one of my classes with the court system. Everyone wants the Supreme Court to FIX everything with. And I couldn't help but think that there really is no way for our society to become fixed if people don't realize the importance of morality, and yes, the family.

  3. So true! I've been thinking similar thoughts of late and taking solace in the very same truths.

    Thanks, Jen.


  4. I taught this very thing in Sunday School to the 14 yr olds. When I handed each of them a copy, they all had a comment about how they had one hanging in their house all framed and pretty.

    I like the last to paragraphs - the warning. It sounds like the Book of Mormon to me.

    I just want to say to the world....Come on people, get it together!!

  5. Liked your purple outfit yesterday! :) We need to have book club again soon, or lunch!

  6. This proclamation has turned out to be such a prophetic statement of our times, just confirms and strengthens my testimony of prophets - where would we be without it today . . . ?


  7. If you would like to get a good deal from this article then you have to apply such methods to your won website. |

  8. Very good stuff with good ideas and concepts, lots of great information and inspiration, both of which we all need.
