“Home: A Sacred and Safe Haven,” Ensign, Mar. 2010, 38–41
“Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. … Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. …
The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.”1
There is safety in the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ and in our covenants. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, individuals and relationships can be healed. Adults and children can find love and safety within the bonds of family—no matter what its current configuration. Following is artwork that captures the intrinsic power available to us as we live the gospel within the sacred walls of our home.
