As I listened to the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this weekend, I was struck by a bold pronouncement by Elder M. Russell Ballard, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve and a modern day Apostle. He spoke in the Sunday afternoon (closing) session of the conference. I perked up my ears when I realized his subject matter was something I had been thinking about lately. This is a quote from the church website, giving an overview of his talk.
How powerful! How bold! Sometimes we may think this, but so often our leaders, political or spiritual don't come right out and say it. We need families. We need moms and dads who are purposefully dedicated to their homes and children and society. I have been in the political middle for several years now. I don't like the agendas of the far Right or Left. But I'm grateful for common sense and people who are willing to say clearly that we must rekindle the fading glory of our amazing country and that it begins where?
In the home.
Thank you. *grins bashfully* I will get off my soap box now. Please go about your business. :)
