“The family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children” ( The Family: A Proclamation to the World). Families are the most important unit in time and all eternity, and Heavenly Father’s plan for all of us to find eternal happiness just wouldn’t be complete without them. We are put into families for a reason. He wants us to help each other learn, grow, and get through life’s trials. He also wants us to be happy.
I know that I find the greatest joy in the presence of my very own family, and I know for a fact that I’m not the only one who feels the same! Families are what make this missionary work all worth it. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing how this gospel can transform a group of people living together into an extremely united and loving family unit. Nothing can bless and bind a family together more than the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have seen it do wonders for relationships since I’ve been here in New York. This is a very dear family of mine that I got to know while I was serving in Rochester. By working with them I was able to firsthand experience what happens when a family is centered on Christ. If you truly, truly want your family to be happier, just listen to the message our missionaries bring.
