The Family is one of the greatest gift God has given us.
From the very beginning the Lord has established the importance of the family organization for us.
Elder Tom L Perry of the Twelve Apostles said in the 2003 Conference:
“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’ (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.” 1
That is why Elder Ivins was so excited to have a miracle in England.
While on a blitz in his area he and his companion found a young man knocking on doors. They chatted for about 5 minutes and asked if they could come in and share more about who they were and what they do.
"Sure" The man said. Then as they walked in
a woman walked in with a baby in her arms and a child.
A family to TEACH!
After a lesson prayer and how it is such a blessing to be able to pray and how it could bless them as a family and individual, they set an appointment for the missionaries to come back.
They gave them a Book of Mormon.
Such a nice little surprise...The Family.
