Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! We believe in families and we believe in children.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.—Genesis 1:28
It is a crowning privilege of a husband and wife who are able to bear children to provide mortal bodies for these spirit children of God. We believe in families, and we believe in children.—Neil L. Andersen
