A Good Home

In FHE tonight we read a great quote by Gordon B. Hinckley from his book Stand A Little Taller:

A Good Home

No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned. -D&C 121:41

"Good homes are not easily created or maintained. They require discipline, not so much of children as of self. They require respect for others, that respect which comes best from acceptance of the revealed word of the Lord concerning the purposes of life, of the importance and sacred nature of the family, and recognition of each member of the family as a child of God."

I loved this quote and thought I would share. "Good homes are not easily created or maintained." That is so true. We hope and pray we'll be able to welcome a little child into our home. We have worked hard these past 5 years to make our home our own heaven on earth. Gavin's sister and her husband have created another heaven on earth in their home. We pray for Gavin's sister and her family as they pray that my new little niece will be able to forever call their family "home". Love you guys! We're praying for you!
