I am so excited about this beautiful book, and just bought twenty copies to share with people I love. The artwork is stunning and fresh, and the message of the book warms my soul: we have Heavenly Parents, Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, in whose image we are created, and who have provided a plan, an earth, and a model for us to hold family councils, serve one another in families, and grow up in God no matter what form our personal family may take. Filled with powerful and tender quotations from general authorities about these concepts, this book will help the children of the Church to grow up with a natural understanding of these important truths, and will help the adults of the Church celebrate them with joyful hearts. Great questions to help spark wonderful discussions with children and grandchildren. I feel like I have been waiting all my life for just such a book as this.
