Family Holic

'The relationship between husband and wife is the linchpin in the whole family relationship. Literally taking the Lord into partnership with us will bring us a full measure of peace, happiness, unity and contentment.' James E. Faust

'Fatherhood is not an easy assignment, but it ranks among the most imperative ever given, in time or eternity. We must keep trying, keep reaching, keep praying, keep listening. We must keep them 'within the clasp of our arms.' That is what friends are for.' Jeffrey R. Holland

'The characteristics of motherhood, which include concern for others, sacrifice, service, compassion, teaching, encouraging and inspiring, can be the noble labor for each one of us now, with or wothout children. The fate of each spirit in the eternities to come depends so much on the training it receives from those here and now who are willing to help another gain eternal life.' Ardeth G. Kapp

'Hold family home evenings every week without fail. This is a wonderful time to share your testimony with your children. Encourage them to share their feelings about the gospel. Help them learn to recognize when they feel the presence of the Spirit. Family home evenings will help to create an island of refuge and security within your won home.' Joe J. Christensen

Filled with encouragement and heartwarming stories and examples, Familie sustaines the doctrins of the Church and speaks in a relevant way to strengthen every family.
