Where Can You Find the Best Example of Godlike Love?

 

Some attributes we teach our children.

Some they teach us. 

 

Look at those eyes …

 

Where could you ever find a better glimpse into the heart of Heavenly Father?

Where can you find the best example of Godlike love?

Yet, there is one important thing about love that you can teach your child.

They need to know that Heavenly Father is full of love just like they are.

 

And that He loves them.

Kids need to know that Heavenly Father loves them

 

The Temple experience is full of evidence of Heavenly Father’s deep capacity to love.

We see His immense creative efforts.

We witness His ever-persistent patience with His children’s imperfect journeys.

And of course, we witness the unfolding of the intricate plan of happiness He has created for our benefit.

 

The Temple shows us that when we know the depth of Heavenly Father’s love, we can live with hope and happiness.

Sharing these truths with your children will give them perspective.

It will give them strength to resist temptation and weather the worst storms.

 

No matter the season, take the time to go outside with your children.

View Heavenly Father’s masterful works.

Just a few moments can remind you of His remarkable ability to love.

 

Look at the sparkling stars with your children.

A sense of jaw dropping marvel will sink into their hearts.

 

The sweet smell of lilac …

The crunch of fall leaves…

The taste of the years first strawberry …

These are all gifts of love from our devoted, generous Father in Heaven.
