to my future children: installment four

i want you to figure out who you are and what you like for yourself, so i'll try as hard as i can to not force you to figure those things out before you are ready. i'll try to teach you what it means to be a good and productive person and member of the church, but, as far as your own unique personality goes, i'll do what i can to let you develop that on your own. (and hopefully you'll turn out pretty great, not weird or creepy :))

we'll have family scripture study. as much as i hated getting up even earlier during my school years to read (and as much as i hate to admit this, i kind of miss getting up so early back then. i will probably regret saying this in the future, but i got so much done then. but anyway.), it's good for you to have some experience reading the book of mormon even when you don't quite get it yet.

and, you will know that, though we love all of heavenly father's children, marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. i don't know what the world will believe or teach about this when you are growing up, but i'm going to make sure you know what's up and what we believe/know.
