In class we were discussing the roles our families members play. In was pretty consistent that many parents can play both sides. Some fathers cook and clean more, while some moms provide and do the yard work. In my family, my dad is the planner, provider, protecter, and he presides over our family. My mom is an amazing woman who cleans, cooks, chauffeurs, and helps her children to know how to do those things. My parents are very good at doing things together, and in certain situations they can shift their roles.
Families are an important part of God's plan. We are to come to earth so we could return with eternal families. Not to return alone. Our best examples are our Heavenly parents.
