Communities and nations are stronger when families in them are strong. There are numerous ways to strengthen our families. There is an old saying: “Families that pray together stay together.” This is true. The saying could also be applied to other activities: “Families that study the scriptures together stay together” or “Families that enjoy wholesome recreation together stay together” or “Families that go to church together stay together.”
I believe that families are strengthened by all these activities because the activities themselves strengthen families. I also believe one of the keys to making families stronger is the word “together.” Families must invest their time together in order to know each other. I believe that it is best to be together physically, but I know how difficult it is with family members scattered all over the nation or even the world. For this reason I am grateful for the modern conveniences such as telephones and the Internet as well as the postal service.
I am starting my spring break and will be investing my time with my family; therefore, I may not have the opportunity to write on my blog every day. I hope my regular readers understand and invest time with their own families. We can bless our communities and nations by strengthening our own families.
