Look how young were all were in 1992
Mike and I have been blessed to raise a wonderful family. Strong family is a part of Heavenly Father's plan for his children. I love "The Family, A Proclamation to the World", which says in part
"The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. 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. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners."
I feel like our family has lived these values and it has help to make us strong. In our society, especially in California, the traditional family is coming under attack. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is joining with other churches to pass Proposition 8. This proposition in its entirety says
"Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California."
I truly hope this proposition passes. I wish for people to live in strong families, it is such an incredible blessing.
