  • Happiness in marriage and parenthood can exceed a thousand times any other happiness ~James E. Faust (Ensign, Nov. 1977)

  • Marriage, in its truest sense, is a partnership of equals, with neither exercising dominion over the other, but, rather, with each encouraging and assisting the other in whatever responsibilities and aspirations he or she might have (Ensign, Aug. 1992, 6)

  • Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities ~ President Uchtdorf One Key to a Happy Family ( Liahona OCT. 2012)

  • I have discovered one thing that most [happy familes] have in common: they have a way of forgiving and forgetting the imperfections of others and of looking for the good. Those in unhappy families, on the other hand, often find fault, hold grudges, and can’t seem to let go of past offenses. ~ President Uchtdorf One Key to a Happy Family (Liahona OCT. 2012)

  • We can organize our families based on clear, simple family rules and expectations, wholesome family traditions and rituals, and “family economics,” where children have household responsibilities and can earn allowances so that they can learn to budget, save, and pay tithing on the money they earn. ~ Elder L Tom Perry Becoming Goodly Parents (Oct.  2012 Conference)

  • Family time is sacred. It must be protected and respected. ~Boyd K. Packer And a Little Child Shall Lead Them (April 2012 Conference)
  • One of the great discoveries of parenthood is that we learn far more about what really matters from our  children than we ever did from our parents. ~Boyd K. Packer And a Little Child Shall Lead Them (April 2012 Conference)
  • What we are speaks so loudly that our children might not hear what we say. ~Quentin L. Cook In Tune with the Music of Faith (April 2012 Conference)
  • Marriage is energized by making prime time together. Marriage is protected by an absolute commitment to make it successful. ~Elder Nelson The Doctrinal Importance of Marriage and Children (Jan. 2012 World wide Leadership Training)

  • Life is better and much happier as hearts turn toward family and as families live in the light of the gospel of Christ. ~ M. Russell Ballard That the Lost May Be Found (April 2012 Conference)
