Everyday Miracles, Part 3

"All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God."
"Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny."
"The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave.  Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally."
"Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children."
“Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3).
"The family is ordained of God."
"Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ."
"Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities."
"Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and . . . the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children."

  1. I just got done taking the Family Foundations course, and we memorized The Family: A Proclamation to the World for that class. I had read the document a million times, but it was such a blessing to actually memorize it and see the significance of it in my life. I love the truths it teaches.

    And I LOVE that picture of Evie with her hair all static-y!!! Adorable! :)

  8. What wonderful pictures to put to those quotes!!! Sometimes we get so focused on the serious things we need to do that we forget that "wholesome recreational activities" is part of that Proclamation! Thanks for the reminder!!
