parenthood

A Quote by Hugh W. Pinnock on brothers, children, forgiveness, heroism, home, justice, love, parenthood, problems, sister, and success

A successful home is based on the love and helpfulness of children just as it is based on loving parents handling their responsibilities. ... Be eager to forgive when problems arise at home. Help with your younger brothers and sisters when needed. You are their hero.

A Quote by Hugh W. Pinnock on anticipation, automobiles, criticism, day, family, fatherhood, learning, observation, parenthood, time, and understanding

One day when I was seventeen years old, I was washing the family car in anticipation of going on a date that evening. My father came out of the house to observe what I was doing. He criticized me to the extent that I felt as if I was doing nothing right. Finally I said something like, "Dad, get off my case. Don't you understand this is the first time I have ever been a teenager?" He looked at me and said, "Pal, don't you know this is the first time I have ever been a father?" I grew wiser that day because I realized we all are learning together within a family. We cannot expect our parents to be perfect any more than we can expect ourselves to be all that we hoped to be.

A Quote by Henry D. Moyle on belief, charity, children, christianity, dependence, direction, family, fatherhood, home, hope, improvement, life, love, motherhood, parenthood, progress, responsibility, sharing, and virtue

Charity is not a virtue to expect in others only. It is the all-important Christian attribute to be found in ourselves. . . . We believe that charity must begin at home. Can we hope to be charitable to the stranger if love does not abound in the family? A sure step in the direction of improvement and progress in our own lives comes when we share with mother or father in their dependence as they shared with us in their productive years.... We cannot as children ignore our obligations to our parents by passing responsibility for their care to others. . . .

A Quote by Heber J. Grant on body, earth, eternity, existence, experience, fatherhood, maturity, mortality, parenthood, problems, and spirit

The doctrine of pre-existence pours a wonderful flood of light upon the otherwise mysterious problem of man's origin. It shows that man, as a spirit, was begotten and born of heavenly parents and reared to maturity in the eternal mansions of the Father, prior to coming upon the earth in a temporal body to undergo an experience in mortality.

Heber J. Grant (1856 - 1945)

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on birth, body, composers, earth, god, heaven, individuality, mortality, parenthood, preparation, spirit, spirituality, words, and world

The spirit, if it could be seen with mortal eyes, would appear in bodily shape like a full-grown person with individual endowments that make it a counter-part of the body in which it [resides,] "that which is temporal in the likeness of that which is spiritual." (D&C 77:2.) It was that which came from God and entered at birth into the infant body prepared by its mortal parents. The spirit was of the "Lord from heaven." The physical body was "of the earth, earthy," (2 Cor. 15:47) or in other words, composed of the elements of which the things in the physical world are composed.
