My Wonderful Family

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

As I prepare for Lesson 45 -"The Family Is Ordained of God" for the Sunday School Adult Gospel Doctrine class, I remember our trip to the photo shop for our family photo session last November 30 so we could have a family portrait as a gift for our parents 39th Wedding Anniversary on December 19, 2009. I can't believe how big our family has become now from just 6!

Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve said:

" The plan of the Father is that the family love and companionship will continue into the eternities. Being a family carries a great responsibility of caring, loving, lifting and strengthening each member of the family so that all can righteously endure to the end in mortality and dwell together throughout eternity. It is not enough just to save ourselves. It is equally important that parents, brothers, and sisters are saved n our families. If we return home lone to our Heavenly Father, we will be asked, ' Where is the rest of the family?" (in Conference report, Oct. 1996,88; or Ensign, Nov. 1996, 65)

To this end, our family will continue to work hand in hand to follow the teachings embodied in "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" which contains the Lord's teachings regarding the family, given through the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve. The proclamation states that "successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work and wholesome recreational activities".
