General Conference thoughts: Teaching in the Home – a Joyful and Sacred Responsibility

by Devin G. Durrant

I don’t connect with every talk and this is one that I had a difficult time finding personal application with.  Since I don’t have a family of my own to teach this seemed like N/A  counsel.  Don’t get me wrong, it is good counsel for those it applies to but for those of us who can’t practice its message at this time it wasn’t the easiest to focus on.

But here are my thoughts regarding family.  It seems like there is a juxtaposition occurring between what the world is practicing in regards to family and what it actually wants.  Now, my observations are not scientific or conclusive.  They are merely biased observations from a little speck in the world.  Perhaps it is only with hope that I am seeing ideal families where parents love and respect each other and their children being sought after.  Of course, since that is my hope then that is probably coloring my vision a bit.

My whole basis for this is not sound at all.  Merely a couple of movies I went to where the family life was the ideal and worth more than even riches.  But the fact that someone out there is recognizing this theme enough to make a movie about it is enough to give me a tiny glimmer of hope.
