Cheaper by the Dozen! Our 12th Grandchild!

Welcome to Amelia, daughter of Christopher and Marilyn Valentine, sister of Giselle, Zane and Imogen.

We're so happy you're here! We are grateful and happy that mother and daughter are doing well.

There is nothing more precious to us than our family. Adding each of you to our family was wonderful, and now, having grandchildren is another experience with different emotions that are really hard to explain. I sometimes think my heart will explode with happiness. What a precious gift you all are.

Thoughts on the family:

Prophet Spencer W. Kimball

The family is the basic unit of the kingdom of God on earth. The Church can be no healthier than its families.

Family life is the best method for achieving happiness in this world, and it is a clear pattern given to us from the Lord about what is to be in the next world. Our political institutions . . . cannot rescue us if our basic institution, the family, is not intact.

A true Latter-day Saint home is a haven against the storms and struggles of life. The home should be a place where reliance on the Lord is a matter of common experience, not reserved for special occasions.

Families can be forever! Do not let the lures of the moment draw you away from them! Divinity, eternity, and family--they go together, hand in hand, and so must we.

Prophet Joseph F. Smith

God instituted marriage in the beginning. He made man in his own image and likeness, male and female, and in their creation it was designed that they should be united together in sacred bonds of marriage, and one is not perfect without the other.

Teach your children the love of God. Teach them to love the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Teach them to love their fellowmen, and especially to love their fellow members in the Church, that they may be true to their fellowship with the people of God. Teach them to honor the priesthood, to honor the authority that God has bestowed upon His Church.

Love each other, take care of each other.

All our love,
Mom and Dad,
Shauna and Robert Valentine
