Families Are Central to God's Plan
God made it pretty clear that families are important when he created Adam and Eve. The Holy Bible calls them “man and . . . wife” (Genesis 2:25), and the first commandment God gave them was to have children (see Genesis 1:28).
What is the purpose of a family?
Families are a divine part of God’s plan. They are the fundamental building block of strong societies. Families are where we can feel love and learn how to love others. Life is tough, and we need people we can lean on. Home is a safe haven where we can get advice, support, hugs, and, when necessary, chocolate chip cookies.
