"In the routine of life, we often take our families - our parents and children and siblings - for granted. But in times of danger and need and change, there is no question that what we care about most is our families!"
"Our family-centered perspective should make Latter-day Saints strive to be the best parents in the world. It should give us enormous respect for our children, who truly are our spiritual siblings, and it should cause us to devote whatever time is necessary to strengthen our families. Indeed, nothing is more critically connected to happiness - both our own and that of our children - than how well we love and support one another within the family."
