1.”A mission is a family affair. Though the expanse of continents or oceans may separate, hearts are as one.”                                                                                                                   Elder Thomas S. Monson, Come, All Ye Sons of God, April 2013 General Conference

2.”In a world of turmoil and uncertainty, it is more important than ever to make our families the center of our lives and the top of our priorities.”

3.“President Brigham Young explained that our families are not yet ours. The Lord has committed them to us to see how we will treat them. Only if we are faithful will they be given to us forever. What we do on earth determines whether or not we will be worthy to become heavenly parents.” 

4. “May it be our resolve this year to build a gospel-centered home, a safe harbor from the storms of the adversary.”

Elder L. Tom Perry, The Importance of the Family, April 2003 General Conference

5. “When children see their parents faithfully perform Church callings, it strengthens their family relationships. When families are strong, the Church is strong. The two run in parallel.”

6. “There are cultures or traditions in some parts of the world that allow men to oppress women, but those abuses must not be carried into the families of the Church of Jesus Christ.”

7. “The ultimate mission of our Savior’s Church is to help us achieve exaltation in the celestial kingdom, and that can only be accomplished in a family relationship.”

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, Priesthood Authority in the Family and the Church, October 2005 General Conference

8. “The family relationships we have here on this earth are important, but they are much more important for their effect on our families for generations in mortality and throughout all eternity.”

9. “Because of the importance of the family to the eternal plan of happiness, Satan makes a major effort to destroy the sanctity of the family, demean the importance of the role of men and women, encourage moral uncleanliness and violations of the sacred law of chastity, and to discourage parents from placing the bearing and rearing of children as one of their highest priorities.”

10. “Being one in a family carries a great responsibility of caring, loving, lifting, and strengthening each member of the family so that all can righteously endure to the end in mortality and dwell together throughout eternity. It is not enough just to save ourselves. It is equally important that parents, brothers, and sisters are saved in our families.”

Elder Robert D. Hales, The Eternal Family, October 1996 General Conference
