"As parents ... we can teach them the power and reality of the Atonement—of their identity and divine destiny—and in so doing give them a rock foundation upon which to build. When all is said and done, the home is the ideal forum for teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ."
—Tad R. Callister, "Parents: The Prime Gospel Teachers of Their Children"

"To children whose family situation is troubled, we say, you yourself are no less for that. Challenges are at times an indication of the Lord’s trust in you. He can help you, directly and through others, to deal with what you face. You can become the generation, perhaps the first in your family, where the divine patterns that God has ordained for families truly take shape and bless all the generations after you."
"The ultimate end of all activity in the Church is that a man and his wife and their children can be happy at home."
"You are an eternal being. Before you were born…you trained and prepared to come to earth."
"There exists today a great need for men and women to cultivate respect for each other."
"Strong eternal families and Spirit-filled homes do not just happen. They take great effort."
"It’s never too early and it’s never too late to lead, guide, and walk beside our children, because families are forever."
"Many things are good, many are important, but only a few are essential."
"In the eternal perspective, both the procreative power and the priesthood power are shared by husband and wife."
