Simple and Sweet: Family Pictures

Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. 

“Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). 

Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, 
(My Parents & Brother returning from an LDS mission.)

to provide for their physical and spiritual needs,
(Grapes from our yard.)

and to teach them to love and serve one another,
(Nephew & Niece)

observe the commandments of God, 
(Vacation Bible School)

 and be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. 
(Flags of Freedom at Cedar Badge Graduation)

Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.

 I really enjoyed this post about a family and the choices they have made for teaching their children, freedom, and forgiveness. It touched my heart.
