Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“The Family Is Ordained of God”

Is there anything more important than our relationships? This lessons digs deep into the principles behind healthy relationships, with a focus on marriage and parenting. This is a “two-tone” episode… we model the type of discussion that would fit in a Sunday School environment, and then discuss some of the trickier issues that might come up in private discussion. There is something for everyone here.
