PARENTHOOD

1. Parenthood is a sacred privilege, and depending upon faithfulness, it can be


an eternal blessing. The ultimate end of all activity in the Church is that a
man and his wife and their children can be happy at home.
Boyd K. Packer - April 2014 General Conference The Witness

2. Your secret yearnings and tearful pleadings will touch the heart of both the
Father and the Son. You will be given a personal assurance from Them that
your life will be full and that no blessing that is essential will be lost to you.

3. We as parents and leaders need to counsel with our children and youth on
an ongoing basis, listening with love and understanding.

Pornography A Christ-Focused Home https://www.lds.org/generalconference/2014/04/protection-from-pornography-a-christ-focused-home?

4. We need to make our homes a place of refuge from the storm, which is
increasing in intensity all about us. Even if the smallest openings are left
unattended, negative influences can penetrate the very walls of our homes.

Family https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2003/04/the-importance-ofthe-family?lang=eng&query=family

5. As earthly parents we participate in the gospel plan by providing mortal


bodies for the spirit children of God. The fullness of eternal salvation is a
family matter.

6. Although life sometimes makes us weary, impatient, or too busy for our
children, we must never forget the infinite worth of what we have in our
homesour sons and our daughters. The task at hand, a business
engagement, or a new automobile are all of benefit but pale in value when
compared to the worth of a young soul.

7. Loving, protecting, and nurturing our children are among the most sacred
and eternally important things we will do. Worldly belongings will vanish,
todays number-one movie or song will be irrelevant tomorrow, but a son or a
daughter is eternal.

8. At the outset we understand that conscientious parents try their best, yet
nearly all have made mistakes. One does not launch into such a project
as parenthood without soon realizing that there will be many errors along the
way. Surely our Heavenly Father knows, when he entrusts his spirit children
into the care of young and inexperienced parents, that there will be mistakes
and errors in judgment.

9. Let us not misunderstand. The responsibilities of parenthood are of the
greatest importance. The results of our efforts will have eternal consequences
for us and the boys and girls we raise. Anyone who becomes a parent is
under strict obligation to protect and love his children and assist them to
return to their Heavenly Father. All parents should understand that the Lord
will not hold guiltless those who neglect these responsibilities.

10.Would our perspective be more clear if we could, for a moment, look


upon parenthood as a calling in the Church. Actually, it is so much more than
that; but if we could look at it that way for a moment, we could reach a better
balance in the way we schedule families.
