Family Focused

Family Focused

The family, as the first divinely ordained institution in society, is both honored and sacred. As the primary arena for spiritual growth, within the family is where we learn of morality and values such as truth, gratitude, courage, forgiveness and sacrifice. And it is in the family that we first learn the appropriate way of relating to God and to humans, who are created in His image.
