My Mothers Resolution

After seeing the movie "Courageous" I kept thinking I want to make a resolution for me as a mother and wife just like they had a resolution for men.  I decided to take the "The Family:  A Proclamation to the World" and make action statements to live by.

  • I am a daughter of God created in his image with a divine nature and destiny.
  • I came to earth to receive a body and to eventually return to heaven to be with my Family Forever.
  • The powers of procreation are sacred and I promise to forever be faithful to my husband.
  • I promise to care and love my husband and children.
  • I will provide for the physical needs of my children.
  • I am accountable to teach my children to love God and his commandments, to love and serve others, and to be law-abiding citizens.
  • I know my children are entitled to live with both their mother and father who love them.  I will do everything I can to preserve and cherish my marital vows everyday of my life.  
  • As I follow the teachings of my Savior, Jesus Christ I will find true happiness with my family.
  • I will let my husband be the man of the house by letting him lead our family and provide for our necessities in this life.
  • I know it is my sacred responsibility to care for my children and provide them opportunities to learn and grow in a loving home environment.
  • As a member of my extended family I will offer my assistance, love and support and know I can also turn to them when needed.
  • I know I will be held accountable to God for the way I treat my husband and children.
  • I will promote the importance of family in my community and speak up when needed to defend and strengthen families everywhere.
