Family. . . .Isn’t it about time!
The family is the core unit of any society. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (inadvertently referred to as the “Mormon” Church by the media and others) take it one step further, as they believe that the family is central to God’s plan for His children. It is through the family that children are born, and where they are loved and learn how to love, have their temporal needs met, and are nurtured in truth and righteousness. None of us choose which family we are born into, but we strive each day to make our family happier and stronger. Latter-day Saints further believe that families can be together forever. Below are some videos which exemplify these principles.
