A Sunday citation

Here is a great quote from Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Fielding Smith:

"Do you spend as much time making your family and home successful  as you do in pursuing social and professional success? Are you devoting your best creative energy to the most important unit in society--the family? Or is your relationship with your family merely a routine, unrewarding part of life? Parent and child must be willing to put family responsibilities first in order to achieve family exaltation. ...

"We have been trying to impress upon parents the need of paying more attention to their children, having a little more of the spirit of the gospel in their homes, a little more unity and a little more faith.; a little more responsibility religiously, spiritually on the part of the fathers; also, of the mothers; more of the teaching of the gospel in the home." (Chap. 4, pgs. 79-80)
