Families are Central to Heavenly Father’s plan

Talk Submitted By: Sheri Howells, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

In my family, we sing. We dance. We laugh. We tickle. I stamp with my Mom and I help her with her cricut. I cook with my Mom. My Dad takes me on daddy-daughter dates, and I play video games with him.

I play with my brothers and sisters. We have lots of fun.

In the winter, we go tobogganing. I really like tobogganing. We also like to go swimming.

In the summer we go to Calaway Park, and I love going on the big rides with my Dad. Bumper cars are my favorite.

I love spending time with my family. I know the fun things we do together are important, but I want to be with my family forever.

My Dad and I read the scriptures, and we have family prayer. I know this helps us to become a strong family. And this will help me to prepare to deal with the hard things that will happen as I grow up. I know my family will always be there for me and love me.

When I think of my Heavenly Father and Jesus, I know they love me like my Dad and Mom love me. Heavenly Father and Jesus gave me my family to help me get back to Them. And I want to. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus and my family, and I want to be with them always.

God gave us families to help us become what he wants us to be. This is how he shares his love, for the family is of God.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
