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 families. God gave us families To help us become what He wants us to be. This is how He shares His love, for The Family is of God. Working together parents Guide Provide And love And teach the gospel to their children. A family kneels in family prayer To share Their love for Father in Heaven. The parents’ calling is To care Prepare To nurture And to strengthen all their children. They teach their children To obey To pray To love And serve in the family. I’ll love and serve my family And be a good example to each family member. And when I am a mom or dad So glad I’ll help my family remember: God gave us families To help us become what He wants us to be. This is how He shares His love For the family is of God. Adapted from the song by Matthew Neely 25
