Family Home Evening, Monday, December 10, 2007

Our favorite picture of 2007. Art Festival at Park City.

This week's message comes from portions of the BISHOPRIC MESSAGE of the Canyon View Ward, where Bob and Shauna Valentine belong and participate.

"The safest place and the best protection against the moral and spiritual diseases is a stable home and family. This has always been true; it will be true forever." Boyd K. Packer

"Let me assure you, brethren, that someday you will have a personal interview with the Savior Himself. First, He will request an accountability report about your relationship with your wife. Have you actively been engaged in making her happy and ensuring that her needs have been met as an individual? Second, He will want an accountability report about each of your children individually. He will request information about your relationship to each and every child." David O. McKay, June, 1965 (From notes of Fred A Baker, Managing Director of Physical Facilities.)

"Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shalt cleave unto her and none else." Doctrine and Covenantes 42:22.

President Kimball commented further on this scripture as follows:

"The words 'none else' eliminate everyone and everything. The spouse becomes preeminent in the life of the husband or wife and neither social life nor occupational life nor political life nor any other interest nor person nor thing shall ever take precedence over the companion spouse. We sometimes find women who hover over the children at the expense of the husband, sometimes even estranging them from him. This is in direct violation of the command: None else." (The Miracle of Forgiveness.)
