Happiness in Families: Our First Family

While being children of God may be absurd to many people, take a moment to entertain the thought...

Why in the world would something as beautiful as the human race pop out of nowhere? Beings with the capacity to love, to build, to cry. We are not just born into this world from a chance of science to put in our token life and then decompose.
What happens to our consciousness?
Did our body/spirit combo have a purpose in the first place?
After death does our consciousness float around forever, never to interact with our previous loved ones again. What was before we were born into this world? What is after?

Take a moment and consider...
Any major corporation, non profit organization, even city, is built to serve a purpose. The construction of our bodies, and the intelligence of our minds could not possibly be an accident. The advent of our bodies and minds are possibly the greatest miracle and mystery to us.

The way to really discover the nature and purpose of something is to look at its origin.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Romans 8:16-17
Hence, we are children of God. He really did create us with all the incredible potential of Himself, if we choose the path. It is a Glorious path of Love, and the culmination of the full potential of the human race. Jesus Christ is the key. He is the only path back to our home, and to who we ARE.  The true and whole us. He is eager to show us. We only need to give Him a chance, and we don't take the journey alone. We can become Gods.

After that brain explosion,(yes it seems way beyond the greatest comprehension of the human brain). Gather them together...

The big reason we may be so unable to even entertain the thought, much less believe in it, is most of us are only little seeds, or seedlings, and have a LONG way to go. We look up at this big Oak that we fell from and our eyeballs pop out! Not to mention, we had a veil drawn over our memories, so that we would forget all of this great stuff in order to protect our little mortal minds from the full mind blowing awesomeness.

This world is a training ground for Godhood. He gave us the most basic unit of nurture to help prepare us too.. 

The Family

1. Our Father has a family. It’s me!                                            
It’s you, all others too: we are His children.
He sent each one of us to earth, through birth,
To live and learn here in fam’lies. 

God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be—
This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.

(Women's Session of General Conference) Carol M. Stephens expands this awe inspiring reality :

"We learn not only that the family is of God but also that we are each part of God’s family.
The first line of the song teaches: “Our Father has a family. It’s me! It’s you, all others too: we are His children.” From the family proclamation, we learn, “In the premortal realm(AKA the place we lived before we were born), spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father.” In that realm, we learned about our eternal female(or male) identity. We knew that we were each “a beloved … daughter(son) of heavenly parents.” Our mortal journey to earth did not change those truths.

We each belong to and are needed in the family of God. Earthly families all look different. And while we do the best we can to create strong traditional families, membership in the family of God is not contingent upon any kind of status—marital status, parental status, financial status, social status, or even the kind of status we post on social media."

We, the human race, are brothers and sisters bonded in love by the reality of a supreme being who is our Father, who has a great purpose for us. The future is bright for the human family my friends, if we chose this path of LIFE.
