Teach me to walk in the light

One of life's greatest opportunities is Parenthood. It is a sacred role and responsibility that is given to us by God. Parents are commanded to teach their children the gospel of Jesus Christ. As it is stated in Doctrine and Covenants 68:25-26, I quote, "And again, inasmuch as parents have children in Zion, or in any of her stakes which are organized, that teach them not to understand the doctrine of repentance, faith in Christ the Son of the living God, and of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of the hands, when eight years old, the sin be upon the heads of the parents.
 For this shall be a law unto the inhabitants of Zion, or in any of her stakes which are organized." end quote.

As parents, we should  definitely be instruments in bringing "light" to the minds of our children. This "light" will guide them through their journey in this life.
Good choices of our children absolutely bring joy and comfort to our hopeful and prayerful hearts. Additionally, we may think that our sacrifices and efforts were not in vain.
I love my children with all my heart! My deepest desire for them is to reach their divinest potential someday and be with us forever with Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.
