The Family





Family...a great institution, an organization composed of 3 or more people, an entity of human beings united as one, a format based on love, respect, support, honesty, humility and with one goal...to be together forever.

On earth we are all given the gift of prosperity and the freedom of choice. The freedom to choose right from wrong and the ability to prosper spiritually and physically here on earth. Being blessed with a family is a gift given to us by Heavenly Father. It allows us to prosper towards our own exaltation and the freedom to choose the right. It is our obligation and our desire as Latter Day Saints to raise good children of God. We strive to guide them in the right direction, nurture them, teach them right from wrong, guide them to make righteous decisions in life and love them unconditionally.

This gift is treasured within the LDS church because the family to us is a priority we take very seriously. We strive to raise honest, respectful, obedient, well mannered and spiritual children based upon God's true principles. Upon the Proclamation of the Family we strive to follow its guided prophetic principles allowing us to fulfill our duty in raising spiritual children.
