“Because families are eternal, we cannot afford to be casual or complacent about those relationships…Families mean work, but they are our great work—and we are not afraid of work.”

“Remember that a family established in love and secured by consecration is maintained through work and service. A home is strengthened by work when workers receive respect.”

Barbara B. Smith, Relief Society General President

“Young family members can also learn to have regard for work through being given significant tasks for which they must assume responsibility. The home is a safe place for children to learn how to work because mistakes can be corrected before they become serious, and they can be forgiven. It is the fortunate child whose parent teaches him the value of doing a job well.”

Barbara B. Smith, Relief Society General President
