- Our communication
Our Communications reflect in our countenance. Therefore, we must be careful not only what we communicate, but also how we do so. Souls can be strengthened or shattered by the message and the manner in which we communicate.
2. Personal Revelation
Personal revelations Sisters can help create strong homes and families as they act on personal revelation. “The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life,”Sister Beck continued. “Qualifying for the Lord’s Spirit begins with a desire for that Spirit and implies a certain degree of worthiness. Keeping the commandments, repenting, and renewing covenants made at baptism lead to the blessing of always having the Lord’s Spirit with us. Making and keeping temple covenants also adds spiritual strength and power to a woman’s life. Many answers to difficult questions are found by reading the scriptures because the scriptures are an aid to revelation. … Daily prayer is essential to having the Lord’s Spirit with us.”1
3. Be a good Example
If each and every one of us who are parents will reflect upon the responsibilities devolving upon us, we shall come to the conclusion that we should never permit ourselves to do anything that we are not willing to see our children do. We should set them an example that we wish them to imitate.” (Journal of Discourses, 14:192.) L Tom Perry
4.We can do hard things
Uchtdorf said Forget not to be patient with your self. Stop comparing our weaknesses to their strengths. This drives us to create expectations for ourselves that are impossible to meet. As a result, we never celebrate our good efforts because they seem to be less than what someone else does. Remember we to are learning how to become better parents. And yes things are tough “ but we can do hard things.
A celestial home is difficult to achieve in this world, particularly at this time. It requires that we know what we are aiming for and then that we toil endlessly toward that target, Remember we must keep our sights on heaven and remind ourselves constantly that our goal is a celestial home—and that although all the powers of confusion and darkness gather against us, they shall not prevail. With our own best efforts and the blessings of the Lord we cannot fail.
6. Discipline with loveSisters remember to counsel with the lord as will as with your husband. It is important in disciplining and teaching children that the parents be unified. Whether your style is strict or permissive is not as important as that the discipline is “consistent.” Both parents coming from different family systems will find this consistency often difficult to generate. Parents need to support each other and come to some agreements on how severe and how discipline is to be carried out. Inconsistency, leads to confusion for the child and they quickly learn to run from one parent to the other to get what they want. They quickly learn to manage their parents. This often leads to contention in the marriage, as one parent will feel unsupported and let down and both parents are often frustrated. Learning to be consistent and unified in correcting our children is not easy, but an important necessity in order for our children to grow into righteous adults. It is essential in your relationship as husband and wife. Remember we are all children of our Heavenly Father and he also chastens all of us on occasion. He is consistent and does not over-react. His corrections, even when firm, are consistent and motivated by His love for us. (D&C 121:43)
