We Hold These Truths to be Self-evident

I learned about THIS really neat idea a few weeks ago and I was inspired to take part. A celebration in honor of the 15th anniversary of The Family: A Proclamation to the World how wonderful!

I had big, big, big plans for all of the fun posts I would be doing. Then Boba Fett decided to have a Harry Potter birthday party and instead of spending the last few weeks making awesome posts about family I became a party planner (one of my favorite occupations.) I will be attempting this while negotiating a visit from out of town family members and two birthdays, but isn't that what this party is all about, family?

And so, I find myself twenty-six minutes into September with NO POSTS PLANNED and a broken camera. Wish me luck.I remember when the The Family: A Proclamation to the World was first released. It sounded so sensible and a little self evident, everybody knew those things, why did they feel the need to issue a proclamation? Little did we know that a mere 10 years later it would prove terribly prophetic and now 15 years later it is so BOLD even revolutionary.

I have a testimony that all of the things in The Proclamation are true, that the principles therein bring happiness and that theses words become more sacred to me with each year that passes. How grateful I am for this remarkable document.

Please join me this month as I explore this prophetic document and what it means to me and my family.
