Family gives us strength


Part of the reality of life is hardship. That is not a negative statement. It is simply a statement of fact. Every day brings new challenges. Living with the expectation that life will be difficult makes hard times easier to deal with. When a family encounters hard times they will need to join together and face the challenge as a team. They will need to be sensitive to the needs of individual family members each of whom will face unique difficulties. Life is not easy, but having a support system makes life that much easier.

“Circle of Strength”

Our family
is a circle of
strength and love.
With every birth
and every union
the circle grows.
Every joy shared
adds more love.
Every crisis faced
together makes the
circle stronger.

  1. Facing tragedy, or life storms of any kind, can be extremely difficult. But in the midst of heartache and pain, you can find the hope and courage to go on.

    Maybe we are one of the lucky ones who was raised in a happy and secure family with two loving parents. Maybe we weren’t, and growing up was tough without the love and support we longed for. Likely, as an adult you want a happy home for your family. Living peacefully in a family isn’t always easy, but in God’s restored Church, marriage and families are the most important social unit now and in eternity.

  2. Great post.

    Family can be a great source of strength & support, but only if they are aware of what is going on. When things are happening in your life, if you shut your family out and do not communicate, then you only weaken the support that you may sorely need.


    • I could not agree more.Not all of my family understand or speak to me, but I am lucky enough to have a few family members that are there for me every step of the way…I know that not everyone has that support and truly wish that they did.

  3. This was beautiful.
    Sometimes hardships build bridges inside of the family where there was a history of troubled waters.
    Like you said above, not everyone always understands, but sometimes it’s those few people who just stick around when no one else does.
