Proclamation on the Family Pyramid

What do we need to have a successful family? Help these family members get to the top of the pyramid by circling the words in the puzzle that appear in bold type in the statement on the right side. Words appear up, down, across, and diagonally.

“Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.” (See “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” Ensign, Nov. 1995, 102.)
