Today I, ____________________, will do my part in strengthening my family.
One way you can strengthen your family:
“Many problems in the home come from family members speaking and acting selfishly or unkindly. Seek to be the peacemaker rather that to tease, fight, and quarrel.” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit to seeking to be a peacemaker today.
“In a chapter about families, the Church handbook contains this statement: “The nature of male and female spirits is such that they complete each other.” Please note that it does not say “compete with each other” but “complete each other”! We are here to help, lift, and rejoice with each other as we try to become our very best selves. Sister Barbara B. Smith wisely taught, “There is so much more of happiness to be had when we can rejoice in another’s successes and not just in our own.” When we seek to “complete” rather than “compete,” it is so much easier to cheer each other on!” – We’ll Ascend Together by Linda K. Burton
