I started watching this and thought “does this have to be so slow?” then woke up to the sweet  message lol,  🙂




I focus today on the good that men can do in the highest of masculine roles—husband and father.

Awakenings: Living as Believers in the Nation We Have Now by Charles J. Chaput

I enjoyed this talk, it’s about 40 min., but I think worth taking the time. Below is Archbishop Chaput’s comments from his facebook page

Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archdiocese of Philadelphia, delivers a forum address.

On March 22nd I had the pleasure of delivering a Forum Address at Brigham Young University, “Awakenings: Living as a Believer in the Nation We Have Now.” I’m sharing a link to the streaming video via BYUtv as well as the text via the Archdiocesan website.

THE FAMILY A Proclamation To The World

I updated my “Family Matters” page!! 🙂   🙂   click here to see larger

family proclamation


One of my favorite memories is when my family would get together and have “Family Night” every Monday evening.  My grandparents would come over and we all took turns giving a simple lesson from the scriptures, sometimes even a little presentation to learn more about the gospel. Then we’d have a delicious desert and play all sorts of different games (no tv, computers or videos) we played games like charades and more. Every so often we’d watch “home movies” my grandfather had taken from our summer vacations, holidays or someone’s birthday. Those were Great to watch!!

  • The concept of a united family that lives and progresses forever is at the core of Latter-day Saint doctrine. Within families led by a father and a mother, children develop virtues such as love, trust, loyalty, cooperation and service.
  • According to Church doctrine, a marriage performed in one of the Church’s temples does not dissolve at death as long as the couple remain faithful to their temple vows. Rather, the family relationship continues beyond the grave, and individual family members can progress throughout eternity.
  • In 1995, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles — the Church’s two highest governing bodies — issued a proclamation explaining the divine nature of the family and how family relationships should be conducted and nurtured. (Read “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.”)
  • In 1915, Church leaders established a program that would urge parents to gather their families around them once a week for an evening devoted to family. Family home evening is a time when parents can teach children principles of the gospel. A typical family home evening includes a prayer, song, short lesson, activity and refreshments. Lessons are taught by parents and sometimes by children.
