Home -> Family and Temples -> Family

The family is the fundamental unit of society and the primary setting in which children develop virtue.  God has placed families at the center of His eternal plan for the happiness of His children.

In a family, children learn about love, trust, loyalty, cooperation, and service.  They learn how to behave in a community and develop the attributes of good citizenship.  The health of any society lies in the strength of its families. Thus, strengthening families will strengthen communities and nations.

Home should be a haven, free from the conflicts of the outside world—a place where everyone feels safe, respected, and accepted.
